... TT has also been used to link communities of practice, libraries, and databases, providing access to voluminous amounts of information that can be used by students to enhance their studies and by educators to construct teaching modules and texts. Most significantly, TT has led to tremendous advances in computing, simulation, and visualization improving the teaching of advanced mathematics and facilitating visual representations of complex concepts and principles.

... NAE sponsored a workshop to discuss the development of a plan to achieve interoperabilibr for TT-enabled learning resources. The meeting was intended to provide opportunities for collaboration and networking and to facilitate discussions on the requirements for, benefits of, and challenges to achieving broad compatibility and transferability of existing and future TT-based educational materials in engineering and other STEM disciplines.

... legacy tools to a standards-based environment that promotes interoperable systems? What are the requirements for the development/authoring of tools that would enable rapid protolyping, ease of maintenance, content adaptation, and collaborative development?
From page 10...
... In the final plenary discussion, reports of the breakout sessions were reviewed, and participants attempted to come to a consensus. Several of the important, often overlapping themes that emerged from the discussion are summarized below: Building on existing programs and increasing collaboration will be critical to the long-term success of TT-based education.

... Reforming cultural norms in STEM education will be critical. Reforms could include addressing facula resistance to educational reform; skepticism about the efficacy of educational reform; reducing faculty resistance to the adoption of TT-based tools for teaching and learning; encouraging faculty to place a higher value on sharing, team orientation, and educational contributions.

... What are the critical elements of an enabling architecture that can develop and distribute educational resources? How should learning objects be modeled and data be structured to achieve dynamic content?
