Development towards educational openness

The progress of content

the movement is as follows:

Phase I: content held as HTML within sites. Little or no interoperability. Content mostly viewed “on site”
Phase II: content held as XHTML within sites. Better markup means better SEO. Better SEO means that content starts to find its way out to the wider web
Phase III: content held as XHTML but also key bits of content (news in particular) syndicated out via RSS Phase IV: content held as XHTML/XML; key segments syndicated via RSS (and some RDF) but additional movement of data via some “islands” of additional functionality such as API’s.
Phase V: content held as XHTML/XML, some/all syndicated via RSS, RDF, API’s but additional standards (oAuth, OpenSearch, Microformats etc) begin to ensure further interoperability between disparate sites
