A sad day for the global education community - the IMS Global Learning Consortium decided to withdraw the QTI 2.1 draft specification.
In the last few days the QTI 2.1 draft specification has been removed
from the IMS website, citing a lack of participation:
The IMS QTIv2.1 draft specification has been removed from the IMS
website . Adequate feedback on the specification has not been received,
and therefore, the specification has been put back into the IMS
project group process for further work.
The education community pushed a strong reaction in the IMS-QTI mailing list and I really hope the spec leaders will rethink their decision. Otherwise, excellent education resources - like OLAT for example - will miss a standard and eventually we will observe the chaos of ten years ago (when every company invented their own specification).
IMO: not nice :(
Update: a forum was created to discuss this issue.
