Abstract: IMS Learning Design (IMSLD) is a notation system for learning and instruction. It supports the description of learning processes using a set of standardised concepts, including roles, activities, acts, objectives and prerequisites. With the availability of such a notation, descriptions of learning processes can be shared, critiqued, modified, rated, compared and evaluated. Moreover, the machine-interpretable nature of the notation means that designs can be executed by software to support the dynamic orchestration of multi-learner, multi-role learning processes. This chapter introduces IMSLD and describes experience with its use, supported by the first generation of tooling. We then combine these experiences with observations on the tools in the light of new developments in e-learning in order to derive a set of requirements for IMSLD-enabled visual design environments.
