The purpose of the TLA Working Group (TLA WG) is to foster coordination and collaboration across the TLA community of interest to build a cohesive strategy for managing learning data and enabling the future learning ecosystem. It brings together industry, academia, and government stakeholders across different learning communities to help define and refine overall TLA requirements, identify candidate standards and specifications, and promote data interoperability across organizations, systems, and activities that impact learning. The Working Group membership includes practitioners, technologists, content developers, and other experts that provide insight into the different focus areas that comprise the TLA including:
To be implemented at scale, the Working Group reviews the technical considerations for each focus area, tests and evaluates interoperability specifications, discusses alternatives, and builds consensus to help foster adoption of the TLA. The TLA WG meets monthly; however, the various sub groups meet more frequently based on the specific challenges identified within each focus area.
Date Started: June 2019
