How to Get Involved

We provide a place and a process for individuals and organisations to work together towards a common vision of a global federated technology platform created around the best of existing standards to support global lifelong learning that maximises trust, inclusivity, accuracy, sustainability and usefulness.

Our working groups are currently researching and collaborating to create an expression of this common vision as a blueprint that includes videos and prototypes to maximise understanding.

Our blueprint will take advantage of all relevant emerging technologies such as AI, AR and distributed processing, but will also be generic enough to evolve as future technologies emerge.
