Abstract

Interoperability between e-learning systems and repositories is one of the hottest topics in e-learning community. With an availability of standards and specification for the single learning objects, courses and related learning artifacts the technical focus of the e-learning community has shifted towards the interoperability between different learning systems and learning systems and other sources of digital objects such as digital libraries. In this paper we start with a review of the interoperability initiatives. Next, we describe eduSource's ECL and OKI's OSIDs: two approaches to interoperability and highlight their strengths and how they complement each other. Finally, we describe our present effort in merging the two approaches together with first results and observations from the implementation of the ECL/OKI connector within the scope of LionShare project.
