Educational Issues –Standards that do not further erode the flexibility of current Fair Use for copyrighted material Avoid the Catch-22 – where the rights are tied to the media and not the content itself Operational Issues –DRE Standards that are not onerous to adopt –DRE Standards that do not conflict with other content-related standards (e.g., SCORM, IMS CP, IEEE LOM) –DRE Standards that recognize the complex landscape of content authoring and ownership, licensing models, distribution models, etc.
