Eduml: EduML: Education Markup Language:  

1. as XML Schema:  described fully in http://http://eduml.anet.fr/specs/eduml.1.0.xml
                   (scroll to the middle to see the Markup Tags) . Designed
                   in 1998-1999 as a standard for intercommunication between 
                   educational applications
2. as Zope-Wiki Extension: a loose XML-like language to simplify educational
                   tasks (quizzes, math rendering, online report cards, online
		   course management, openchat, etc...) described partially in:
		   http://ess.vancouver.bc.ca/bruno/eduml/FrontPage in 2000-2002
3. as a Movement: a free-people movement of education stakeholders who want to
                   enjoy the benefits of interoperable educational software
                   in order to maximize sharing  among learning communities, 
		   (and minimize re-inventing of wheels and stranglehold of 
		   monopolies). Speech: (in french) http://eduml.anet.fr/apropos.html
