Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 20013:2020 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document specifies a reference framework of e-Portfolio implementation that can be used to inform and support development of ITLET systems that meet the requirements of learners, instructors, e-learning service providers and others in contexts such as K-12 education, higher education, training and personal development.
The reference framework identifies content and functional components that support e-Portfolio systems. It addresses interoperability issues required for data exchange between these components and among the various categories.
— provides an e-Portfolio reference framework;
— provides descriptions of e-Portfolios in terms of components (content or functional), categories, elements and items;
— identifies commonalities of current implementations of e-Portfolios; and,
— represents the needs of stakeholders (learners, instructors, etc.).
This document does not include:
— in-depth technical review of issues related to adaptability to culture, language, and human functions;
— security techniques related to the protection of privacy information;
— authentication of the identity of an IT or ITLET system user;
— how e-Portfolios might integrate with ITLET systems; and,
— specific requirements of e-Portfolios or e-Portfolio systems to meet jurisdictional domain requirements.
