About the ELF
The E-Learning Framework (ELF) is an initiative by the U.K's Joint Information Services Committee (JISC) and Australia's Department of Education, Science and Training (DEST) to build a common approach to Service Oriented Architectures for e-learning.
The ELF is the result of a shared conviction that exposing networked functions such as user and group data or learning content as simple services rather than as features locked up inside monolithic systems offers institutions more flexibility, more scope for pedagogic innovation and better return on present and future investment.
Discussions are currently underway to create a unified framework encompasing e-learning, research, digital libraries, administration and other activities in the education arena.
