I attended a meeting yesterday that introduced me to XCRI. This is an XML format for representing course information so that institutions can provide an XCRI feed, thereby publicizing their offerings for others to integrate into applications. Perhaps we are heading for a situation where it will be possible to specify your detailed HE requirements (skills, interests, teaching and learning methods) and for a system to generate matches, automatically enroll, produce learning portfolios, etc. Or perhaps its just a way for the UK government to measure and manage HE provision.
