Key events in the development of the eXchanging Course Related Information specification

One of the advantages of having being involved with JISC for a number of years (as a project and a service) is the opportunity to reflect on some activities that we've been involved in for some time. We thought it would be interesting to take the long view of some of our involvement with XCRI and reflect on what has worked and why, and where we think these activities are going next.;xNLx;;xNLx;Image: Mark Stubbs middle earth map of course information
