This paper considers some key challenges that learning technology standards must take account of: the inherent connected-ness 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 alongside 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.
