Learners and outside aggregators will all benefit from access to accurate and timely courses information, and learning providers can reduce the time manually exporting courses data for agencies as well as ensure that their definitive courses information is accessible to the outside world.
XCRI is endorsed by HEFCE, JISC and the ISB, and is in the process of becoming the European standard.
