Hi Simon, just saw you post. I'm quite busy too, so if there is nothing urgent to discuss, may be plan a call at another time.

I'm wondering how much interest there would be in defining an API for InLOC. It's not something I've done before, so would need help, but I have some ideas to share.

Rapasso would be interested in hosting such a server open to the world for free where organizations could publish there competence frameworks thru inloc specifications for use in other applications. But as Frans clearly stated, this makes sense only if there is content. Let's first try to find at least a few organizations willing to publish there frameworks thru InLOC.

Good to have some great people on the call today.

We've arranged the next call for Thursday, 16th Jan, 14:00 UTC / GMT / WET. We don't want to overdo the calls, so monthly for the time being, but sub-groups are encouraged.

Some themes we discussed to carry forward:
* Mahara - can they integrate InLOC, and can they develop their export (originally in Leap2A) to a format more friendly to InLOC?
* Exporting e-portfolio pages to a repository, to archive or to assess, like University of the Arts in London -- any way this could relate to InLOC?
* Can we identify an InLOC friendly format for learning and work-related individual records?
* How can we simply get people to try out and use InLOC? This is essential to the success of InLOC as a specification.

Please take these forward here, or at least report developments here.

Please invite all others interested in InLOC to this community.

Have become a bit of an expert in interoperability for e-portfolio and related systems, with a growing command of models of skills and competence-related information. Really interested in personal values, and how using information about them could be transformative.
