Abstract Framework

The Abstract Framework (IAF) is a device to describe the context within which it will continue to develop its eLearning technology specifications. This framework is not an attempt to define the IMS architecture, rather it is a mechanism to define the set of services for which IMS may or may not produce a set of interoperability specifications. In the cases where IMS does not produce a specification then every effort will be made to adopt or recommend a suitable specification from another organization.

This Abstract Framework document describes the general architectural assumptions that underlie IMS Global specifications and other technical documents. This is a living document which is likely to evolve and be extended to include areas not covered in the current version.
