We had an interesting discussion about these topics.

The slides on these 2 topics are excellent.  Please see the minutes from
the December 2009 meeting in Korea.


    * Standardization of X3D Digital Textbook, Kwan-Hee Yoo, Chungbuk National
University: [Standardization of X3D Digital Textbook]

    * IMS Global Learning Consortium and IMS Standards, Yong-Sang Cho, KERIS
(Korea Education and Research Information Service): [IMS Global Learning
Consortium and IMS Standards]

We will send out a call to all Consortium members to see who is interested
in this initiative.  Korea Chapter will come up with a first draft, then
Anita Don and Dick will help refine and release this call.

Don has sent these slides to colleagues in the Advanced Distributed Learning
(ADL) community http://www.adlnet.gov who are working on use of CAD conversion
to X3D for use in Learning Management Systems (LMSs).  So we might find multiple
synergies and partnerhsips for this work.

The schema expansion is likely OK.  Unfortunately I cannot spend time on the
X3D v3.3 schema yet, am still trying to get some of our X3D v3.2 items complete
first.  This is an agreed-upon prerequisite for the working group.

Myeong-Won will send me the updated examples and I will check them into
sourceforge.  When ready she will work on using subversion in sourceforge
directly herself.

provides information and instructions.  tutorial available on request.

Version-control source:

   1. Use Netbeans, X3D-Edit or some other subversion client (such as
TortoiseSVN or Collabnet) to check out the version-control source and project
   2. Decide whether to use a sourceforge account or anonymous access.
   3. Check out
usually to a local directory such as C:\www.web3d.org\x3d\tools
   4. Further links and information available via the x3d sourceforge project
