The Open Knowledge Initiative is defining an open architectural specification to be used for the development of educational related software. As a framework for applications development, the project was motivated by the desire to have a modular and extensible development platform for building both traditional and innovative educational applications. The initial specifications of the first layer of the Common Services architecture for OKI is now being shared with not just the core development partners (see http://web.mit.edu/oki/comm/) but also the general public via the OKI website, (http://web.mit.edu/oki/dsgn/specs.html). This session will provide an update on the project’s progress and activities.
