In a discussion last week of another project in the works, one in which the course materials would be created in-house rather than collected from faculty as in an OCW model, I found myself having not the least bit of hesitation recommending XML as the best format. Even I was surprised at how easy a call it was. It just serves to highlight how the goals of a project, and the resulting processes, can lead to radically different choices. I’m not anti-XML, I just think it’s probably not the best choice for a sustainable OCW.
