About the JISC CETIS Service

JISC CETIS stands for the JISC Centre For Educational Technology and Interoperability Standards, and is a JISC service.

Our mission is:

Through active engagement with the JISC Community, develop, and facilitate effective implementations and use of, the open standards needed to: implement flexible and adaptive learning environments, learning services and learning resources; increase the choice of available systems and software by helping to maintain a healthy open market; and support the development of the capabilities and good practices within community member institutions needed to:


JISC CETIS is a distributed organisation managed by the Institute for Educational Cybernetics at the University of Bolton, and partnered by the University of Strathclyde, Heriot-Watt University and the Centre for Recording Achievement.

JISC CETIS Strategic Aims and Objectives

Strategic Aims

JISC-CETIS will deliver its mission through:

1. Establishing interoperability specifications, standards and application profiles that meet the needs of the JISC community.

2. Promoting and supporting the understanding, implementation, effective use and adoption of open learning technology specifications and standards.

3. Cooperating with others nationally and internationally to ensure that the above aims are, as far as possible, realised in a common way, and to contribute to the tasks involved in establishing interoperability and general adoption by working in partnership with others.

4. Working closely with the JISC, providing input to and supporting the successful realisation of its strategies, programmes and activities with respect to all aspects of standards-based learning technology, and ensure that JISC and CETIS strategies and activities are aligned for maximum effectiveness.

5. Developing and maintaining effective and efficient working practices

These aims will be achieved through our key objectives:

Key Objectives

Aim 1: To establish interoperability specifications, standards and application profiles that meet the needs of the JISC community.

Aim 2: To promote and support the understanding, implementation, effective use and adoption of open learning technology specifications and standards.

- Install and integrate open standards-based services & systems

- Develop and share processes that support their effective use

- Develop standards based learning activities and content

- Innovatively develop and use the technology in pedagogically effective ways

- Understand the related organisational changes that are needed to effectively embed learning technologies.

This is to be done directly and also indirectly by working with other organisations that also support the FE and HE communities.

Aim 3: Cooperate with others nationally and internationally to ensure that the above aims are, as far as possible, realised in a common way, and to contribute to the tasks involved in establishing interoperability and general adoption by working in partnership with others.

Aim 4: Work closely with the JISC, providing input to and supporting the successful realisation of its strategies, programmes and activities with respect to all aspects of standards-based learning technology, and ensure that JISC and JISC-CETIS strategies and activities are aligned for maximum effectiveness.

Aim 5: Develop and maintain effective and efficient working practices
