This paper considers key challenges that learning technology standards must take into account: the inherent connectedness of the information and complexity as a cause of emergent behavior. Some of the limitations of historical approaches to information systems and standards development are briefly considered with generic strategies to tackle complexity and system adaptivity. A consideration of the facets of interoperability-organizational, syntactic and semantic-leads to an outline of a strategy for dealing with environmental complexity in the learning technology standards domain.
