Title: Standard for Secure and Trusted Learning Systems (EDU/SC/SSTLS)

Purpose: This standard specifies the technical requirements and conformance criteria that help learning systems comply with the most common student data protection regulations that exist in K-12 and Higher Education.

Need for the Project: As educational institutions increasingly embrace automation, issues involving the protection of student data have become critical to market adoption of new technologies: competency management, universal student records, AI tutors, immersive practice environments, and many more. National and regional regulations are now appearing, requiring a variety of assurances and protections of users’ data in all systems, with some special restrictions for data concerning children and students. As institutions adopt cloud-based software services as part of their distance-education or blended-education offerings, the data security issues become even more complex and more critical to the acceptance of these new online service offerings. There is a need for standards that developers of Learning systems can follow and third parties can test against to provide the market with confidence that student data is properly protected and managed.

Stakeholders for the Standard: Schools, Colleges, universities, publishers, educational software and hardware vendors, educators, students, student parents, national and international educational institution policy makers and managers.

Sponsoring Society and Committee: IEEE Education Society/Standards Committee (EDU/SC)

Joint Sponsors: IEEE Computer Society/Learning Technology (C/LT) and IEEE Industrial Electronics Society/Industrial Electronics Society Standards Committee (IES/IES)
