eLML - eLesson Markup Language

The eLesson Markup Language (eLML) is an open source XML framework for creating structured eLessons using XML. For easier lesson authoring eLML will offer a web-based WYSIWYG editor in March 2008.

Product Type: Software
Discipline: Other (not discipline specific, etc.)
Topics: Content creation, IMS Content Package, SCORM
Benefit: With eLML you have a clean separation between content and layout. This is more sustainable and easier to maintain over long terms than e.g. HTML or Flash. An eLML lesson can be transformed into many formats like XHTML, SCORM, IMS Content Package, PDF, LaTeX or ODF (Open Document Format). With one content source file you can create many output format. See the website for examples.
