Over deze norm
The purpose of this CWA is twofold: 1. Identify those elements within the SIF Data Model that should be extended in order to be used in a worldwide environment. For this, special attention was paid to the identification of issues related to multicultural and multi-lingual environments. 2. Harmonise the SIF Data Model with other existing specifications/standards in the e-learning domain. Also, for those aspects not directly related to e-learning (e.g. bus routes, cafeteria tickets, etc.) this CWA presents whether standards in those areas exist or not. Although the purpose of this CWA is to internationalise SIF in a worldwide context, special emphasis was put on those issues that may affect the multicultural and multilingual Europe. The use of the SIF data model in a multicultural and multilingual environment raises some issues about localisation and/or correct interpretation of attributes used in different contexts. For this reason it is mandatory to identify those SIF data elements that are culturally dependent, need to be further detailed or are not clearly explained.
