Comment: ISO/IEC 24751-1:2008 provides a common framework to describe and specify learner needs and preferences on the one hand and the corresponding description of the digital learning resources on the other hand, so that individual learner preferences and needs can be matched with the appropriate user interface tools and digital learning resources. ISO/IEC 24751-2:2008 provides a common information model for describing the learner or user needs and preferences when accessing digitally delivered resources or services. This description is one side of a pair of descriptions used in matching user needs and preferences with education delivery (as described in ISO/IEC 24751-1). ISO/IEC 24751-2:2008 discusses the basic principles adhered to in developing this model for describing personal needs and preferences.
