Subject: Call for Participation: DocBook eLearning

Title: Call for Participation: DocBook eLearning

there has been renewed interest in the DocBook for eLearning schema. Please let me know if you are interested in contributing to this effort! (OASIS membership is required)

Following is our current charter:

OASIS DocBook Subcommittee for eLearning


For more than a decade, DocBook has provided a structured markup vocabulary for hardware and software documentation. DocBook has a very broad element set, and applies to much more than just technical documentation. The DocBook TC is engaged in evolving the suite of DocBook specifications. 

The OASIS DocBook SubCommittee for eLearning is chartered to develop and maintain official variants of DocBook in support of the eLearning industry. Specifically, the subcommittee will focus on schema and stylesheet customizations to support:

1. Develop and design a DocBook-based method for creating reusable learning objects, and the learning content types needed to support them.

Some specifics of the design for learning content include:

1. learning types, including assessments and exercises

2. A content assembly for structuring, sequencing and managing the learning types as reusable learning objects

3. linking and relationships between learning objects

4. interactions

2. Establish guidelines that promote best practices for applying DocBook markup to learning content

Scope of Work

This subcommittee will submit additional enhancements back to the full DocBook standard as appropriate. The scope of this DocBook subcommittee is eLearning content. Broadly, this includes online learning, instructor-led training and other related educational materials.

This effort will deliver on the following goals:

· Build official DocBook variants, based against the DocBook v5.0 schemas.

· Address issues and enhancement requests that have arisen from experience with real-world DocBook and eLearning implementations.

· Add support for features specific to the eLearning industry.

Thanks and best regards,
