"Plugging in" illustration


Over the last 18 months, SALTIS has been supporting a Becta-led project to improve the interoperability of learning platforms (VLEs) and associated learning content. In early September, Members of SALTIS approved the final project outputs. SALTIS is now organising an "implementation group" to carry these outputs forwards to launch of comformant content at BETT 2012.
