The information is not restricted to purely 'open' standards, which (at this moment in time, that is) is understandable. The information is also not restricted to e-learning standards, but also standards in the field of text editing or images. Sometimes you need to be a little pragmatic. All standards are documented in the same way (based on a template). What is very nice that there are headings like "Risk Asessment" and "Take-up Elsewhere" for every entry. The approach of JISC with regard to standards is also explained.
I found a wiki, which is the working area, where 'everyone' can edit. And there is a website, that holds more permanent (and pertinent?) information. Go find out for yourself what you think!
Some standards that you will find explained:
- Binary text documents, such as DOC, RTF, ODF, or PDF
- Image standards: for example SVG, TIFF or PNG
- Examples of multimedia standards: ACC, MP3, ASF
- Metadata: DIDL, RDF, RSS
- E-learning standards: Learning Design, Content Packaging, IMS Enterprise, QTI
