1EdTech published the ePortfolio standard version 1.0 in June 2005. This standard enables the exchange of information about the learner, their learning activities and achievements, reflections on their experiences, goals, plans, etc. The ePortfolio is exchanged using an 1EdTech Content Package-based format. The 1EdTech Comprehensive Learner Record standard supersedes this standard.


ePub for Education is a profile for digital publishing targeted for an education audience. ePub focuses on defining accessibility features, learning objectives, and assessments that can be included in digital publishing. For more information see, ePub for Education.

Extensible Markup Language (XML)

XML is a markup language that defines a set of rules for encoding documents in a format that is both human-readable and machine-readable. 1EdTech uses XML as one of the binding data formats for the exchange of information. The 1EdTech standards that use XML/XSD include Metadata, Common Cartridge, QTI/APIP, and OpenVideo Metadata.

Extensions Framework

This is a new framework document, under development, that brings together all of the patterns available for extending a 1EdTech specification. The aim is to create a single reference document for all of the extensions patterns that MAY be used in a 1EdTech specification. A 1EdTech specification will cite, and if necessary further profile, the extension patterns to be used (data model and service extension as appropriate). If a new extension pattern is identified, this will be added to this framework document and so ensure that a common approach is always used for any of the permitted extension techniques.



Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

Final Release

pecification documents and associated technical documents—developed in Task Forces and Project Groups—that are intended for external publication as 1EdTech documents that have been approved by the Technical Advisory Board (TAB).

Example: The Open Badges version 2.1 final release was issued on October 25, 2021. 

Forum Profile

This is one of the Metric Profiles defined in the 1EdTech Caliper Standard. The Caliper Forum Profile models learners and others participating in online discussion forums. Forums typically encompass one or more threads or topics to which members can subscribe, post messages and reply to other messages if a threaded discussion is permitted. 


General Profile

One of the Metric Profiles defined in the 1EdTech Caliper Standard. The Caliper General Profile provides a generic event notification for describing learning or supporting activities that have yet to be modeled by Caliper.

General Web Services

The General Web Services Base Profile promotes interoperability for SOAP/XML-based web service based specification implementations on different software and vendor platforms. The Base Profile focuses on a core set of web service specifications and the most common problems experienced implementing the identified web service specifications. It is not a goal of the General Web Services Base Profile to create a plug-and-play architecture for web services or to guarantee complete interoperability. The General Web Services Base Profile addresses interoperability in the application layer, in particular, the description of behaviors exposed via Web Services. The General Web Service Base Profile is derived from the Web Services Interoperability Basic Profile v1.1 and the Web Services Interoperability Simple SOAP Binding Profile v1.0. 

Globally Unique Identifier (GUID)

(GUID) A unique label. Other providers may use "Global Unique Identifier" (GUID). Applications (LMS, SIS, CMS, and Apps) can "read" and share the GUID, making it possible to track the learners' use, activities and outcomes associated with a given Learning Standard.
