How do I use the Version 1.0 Reference?

When the Digital Learning Asset Framework was announced on January 30th, 2018, only the single-page reference was available. Since then, more explanatory details have been released, and there is still more to come. If you’d like to be notified when more info is available,  please sign up for our email list.

The Reference is intended to be a “cheat sheet” of sorts, an easily reproducible document that contains a summation of all the relevant information. Click here to download the PDF.

It breaks down into four key components:

  1. Definition
    Defines what Digital Learning Assets are. Click here for more info.
  2. Principles
    Defines each of the Five Core Principles. Click here for more info. Each of these will be explored in more detail next week.
  3. Structure
    Provides the extensible structure of the Framework that extends from the five core principles. Click here for more info.
  4. Metadata
    Suggested list of tracking fields for each individual Digital Learning Asset. More info coming soon.

The best way to use this reference is to refer to it when discussing and developing media assets for training projects.

  • How will value be expressed for each of these assets?
  • Are you prepared to track the metadata for each asset so that you can better plan for the entire lifecycle of that asset?
