IEEE P2834 Joint Standardization Project on Secured and Trusted Learning Systems

First, the presentation will focus on the development and maintenance processes of IEEE Education Society sponsored standard, the IEEE Std 1876 – 2019 on Networked Smart Learning Object for Online Laboratory. Then we will talk about IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) carrying several satellite projects such as those generated by IEEE Industry Consortium on Learning Engineering (ICICLE) initiative. Finally, the newly approved standardization tasks on Secured and Trusted Learning Systems, the P2834 will be unveiled. This initiative is jointly sponsored by IEEE Education Society (EdSoc), IEEE LTSC and IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES).


Prof. Saliah-Hassane earned a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from McGill University in Montreal, a Bachelor and Master of Applied Science degree from École Polytechnique de Montréal, Canada and a Technical University Degree in Electronics at Institute of Technology of Université de Dakar, Senegal. He is currently teaching Informatics and Computer Networks and Security at TELUQ University in Montreal. Prof. Saliah-Hassane is a senior researcher at TELUQ University with interest on Intelligent Distributed Systems including Smart Grids, Trusted and Secured Networked Educational Devices for Online laboratories and Mobile Robotics.Prof. Saliah-Hassane is the Chair of IEEE Education Society Standards Committee as well as the Chair of the IEEE Std. 1876™ -2019 Working Group on “Standard on Networked Smart Learning Objects for Online Laboratories”.


Miguel Rodríguez Artacho is a professor in the Department of Languages and Information Systems of the UNED and a researcher in the group of educational technologies of the same department. He has been the founder of the standardization committee of educational technologies SC36 of AENOR where he holds the position of technical secretary. He has also participated in several standardization forums such as ISO JTC1 SC36 and CEN TC353, as well as vice-chair of P1876 IEEE-SA. At this moment, he coordinates in the UNED the eMadrid project financed by the Comunidad de Madrid for the development of educational technologies in this region. 

IEEE Education Society Standard 1876 –«Networked smart learning objects for online laboratories»

After the rise of elearning standards and the technological maturity of content integration and structuring, the development of laboratory interoperability mechanisms had been relegated to generic interoperability frameworks. In 2014, the IEEE-SA group P1876 launched a proposal to create an interoperability standard for online laboratories that has resulted in the first standard of the IEEE education chapter. This talk describes the standard and discusses the most relevant aspects of it.

Is there room for standards on learning technologies in our quickly changing digital world?

We are surrounded by technologies that offer new and unique affordances for informal and formal learning, situated and experiential learning, training and simulation, collaboration or life-long learning. Learners and learning contexts are also changing as a consequence of the pervasiveness of technologies, a pervasiveness that shapes our behaviour, attitudes and expectations on what, how, where and why to learn. Learning technologies have torn down space and time barriers and are democratizing access to quality learning contents and activities all over the world. But these technologies are evolving at unprecedented rates to support more and more services and audiences. In this quickly evolving and global context, does it make any sense to talk about standards? Do standards constraint our creativity and need for personalized resources? Can we standardize learning technologies when we can’t even envision their evolution and the impact in our society? In this talk, I will try to highlight the role of standards to set a common ground of knowledge and expertise to answer these and other questions on the value and impact of learning technologies in the digital world.


Prof. Dr. Paloma Díaz is Full Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid.
