Managing the rights associated with digital learning content is a legal, societal and technological challenge. This panel focuses on the technological aspects. Two panelists will briefly demonstrate and discuss research projects in the European Union and Australia where course management systems and learning object repositories have been integrated into distributed networked environments. Two other panelists will equally briefly demonstrate and discuss general technologies and standards being developed in the United States and United Kingdom for expressing and managing rights. The moderator and audience will have ample opportunity to ask questions about the implementations shown and about the direction being taken by technology that provides rights management and related services.
