I presented BCCampus’ work with B.C.’s Post Secondary Electronic Standards Council (PESC) at the international PESC Annual Conference in Los Angeles this past September. This work includes a pilot project to exchange student transcripts electronically between participating B.C. institutions.
The presentation was well received and I was asked to join the PESC Technical Advisory Board, which is responsible for updating and maintaining technical specifications, and for providing guidance on technical and architectural issues related to electronic standards in higher education.
Wider acceptance and implementation of PESC standards will contribute greatly to the burgeoning online community in higher education.
