Task Model for Project-Based Learning (C/LT/TMPL)
This project is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society/Learning Technology Standards Committee(C/LTSC)
Title:Task Model for Project-based Learning
The Task Model for Project-based Learning (TMPL) standard specifies the metadata required to describe a small real-world work
project that is a suitable learning opportunity, e.g., for a student intern or lifelong learner. The work project could be stand-aloneor a part of a
collaborative work activity. The TMPL standard enables applications to share data about work projects in a consistent way with
all of the information needed to match projects with learners' background, objectives, and constraints. These applications might help
managers find student team members or help learners gain experience by finding real-world tasks that develop a needed competency.
The standard allows learners to conduct a single search across all conforming task registries to find appropriate tasks. The standard is
complimentary and conformant to IEEE 1484.20 Standard for Learning Technology--Data Model for Reusable Competency Definitions.
The TMPL standard allows multiple applications to develop and share consistent data about project-based learning opportunities.
Need for the Project:
In many disciplines, some learning objectives are best realized in the context of real-world projects. The need for on-the-job
learning experiences is increasing, as evidenced by movements like competency-based education and new 1
technologies like Mozilla Open
Badges. This standard will enable the development of exchanges and similar applications that match tasks posted by employers with the
qualifications, interests, and availability of potential learners.
