How can we make sense of discrete “flat” non-interactive content versus authorware-rendered content versus digitally sequenced courseware? This learning group focuses on user interface and how learning resources range from discrete learning objects, through full digital courseware, and into framework platforms; with mutations of all three.

The leadership outcomes are to provide an update in a comment blog, questions for an annual Survey, and suggestions for work the following year.
