The OASIS DocBook eLearning Subcommittee develops and maintains official variants of DocBook in support of eLearning content, including online learning, instructor-led training, and other related educational materials. The group addresses issues and enhancement requests that have arisen from experience with real-world DocBook and eLearning implementations. It also establishes best practices guidelines for applying DocBook markup to learning content.

The Subcommittee focuses on schema and stylesheet customizations to support a DocBook-based method for creating reusable learning objects and the learning content types needed to support them. Specifics include:

  1. learning types, e.g., assessments and exercises

  2. content assembly for structuring, sequencing, and managing learning types as reusable learning objects

  3. linking and relationships between learning objects

  4. interactions
