This special issue focuses on recent directions for the alignment of human performance, e-learning, and standards developments and their rising impact for research, growth, and organizational and societal change. To accelerate this growth, it is important to realize there will always be more than one approach. From a general perspective, two complementary approaches exist. One is 'top-down', in which technology is identified and implemented from the educational and business needs for effectiveness and quality; the other is 'bottom-up', in which emerging technology is utilized in design and implementation of novel learning methodology. For sound and sustainable growth of ICT-based education and training, it is also important to pay attention not only to the technology itself, but also to technology infrastructures, pedagogies and organizational aspects. Against this background, this special issue emphasizes also upon open contents and standards, both of which are important driving forces of ICT-based education, training and organizational learning. It strives for setting directions for the implementation of standards, which can enhance the interoperability of educational and training resources and the systems that are used to develop, discover, transfer, and use that content.
