ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 Information Technology for Learning, Education and Training is a standardization subcommittee (SC), which is part of the Joint Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC 1 of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), that develops and facilitates standards within the field of information technology (IT) for learning, education and training (LET). ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 was established at the November 1999 ISO/IEC JTC 1 plenary in Seoul, Korea. The subcommittee held its first plenary meeting in March 2000 in London, United Kingdom. The international secretariat of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 is the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS), located in the Republic of Korea.
Scope and mission
The scope of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 is “Standardization in the field of information technologies for learning, education, and training (ITLET) to support individuals, groups, or organizations, and to enable interoperability and reusability of resources and tools.”
The following exclusions apply to the ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 scope:
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 shall not create standards or technical reports that define educational standards, cultural conventions, learning objectives, or specific learning content.
In the area of work of this subcommittee, standards and technical reports will not duplicate work done by other ISO or IEC technical committees, subcommittees, or working groups with respect to their component, specialty, or domain. Instead, when appropriate, normative or informative references to other standards shall be included. Examples include documents on special topics such as multimedia, web content, cultural adaptation, and security.
The mission of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 is to:
- Provide quality ITLET standards to meet stakeholder needs
- Promote the use of ITLET standards by providing supporting material
- Provide leadership in ITLET standardization through:
- The development of a comprehensive set of integrated standards with international and professional consensus
- Initiating cooperative work with international professional, and standards producing, organizations
- A framework that:
- Facilitates the integration of standards developed in other standards producing organizations
- Minimizes the inconsistencies between related standards, including those developed by other standards producing organizations
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 is made up of eight Working Groups (WGs) and one Advisory Group (AG). Each Working Group carries out specific tasks in standards development within the field of ITLET, where the focus of each working group is described in the group’s terms of reference. The eight Working Groups of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 are::10
