AICC PENS AGR-011 Available in French

To further facilitate international adoption, the AICC Package Exchange Notification Services (PENS) AGR document has been translated to French. AICC Guidelines and Recommendations (AGRs) represent the official voice of the AICC with respect to a designated area. All AGRs, including AGR-011 for PENS, have been formally voted upon and approved by the general voting membership of the AICC.

The AICC expresses special thanks to Marc Van Coillie of EIfEL, and Bernard Bouyt and Jean-Louis Bravo of Airbus for their gracious volunteer efforts to translate this document. The PENS AGR summarizes the protocol and provides a rationale for advocating its use. Availability of this document "en francais" will help the shared efforts of the AICC and the European Institute for E-Learning to support interoperability demonstrations at iLearning Forum 2008 in Paris.

Now available from the AICC Publications page: AGR011 - CBT Package Exchange Notification en français [PDF, 168K].
