iCOPER - Interoperable Content for Performance in a Competency-driven Society


Abstract

ICOPER is a Best Practice Network project funded by the European Commission in the eContentplus programme. It is driven by a consortium of 23 key players in Europe and will provide access to a critical mass of more than 12,500 hours of integrated educational content. Based on this beneficial infrastructure the project will systematically analyse educational specifications and standards available and in use, to draw conclusions on their validity in ICOPER Suitability Reports for Better Practice. ICOPER’s underlying educational framework will guide a consensus building approach to developing Best Practices, addressing issues such as: (1) exchange of competency models and learning outcomes, (2) collaboration around learning designs, (3) integration of content via federated search and harvesting, (4) reuse of instructional models and content in learning delivery environments, (5) interoperability of item banks for assessment and evaluation.

ICOPER will provide mechanisms to ensure European-wide user involvement, cooperation, and adoption of standards within a large community to support all phases of standardization.
