Join ASPECT as an Associate Partner

Organisations and individuals can participate in ASPECT Best Practice Network events by becoming an ASPECT Associate Partner. Membership of ASPECT is open to any organisation or individual that is able to contribute to its primary mission of helping stakeholders to define and adopt best practice related to the application of standards and specifications for digital content used in schools.

There is no fee involved in order to join ASPECT or to participate in its online community but organisations and individuals are required to meet all their own costs involved in attending ASPECT events.

ASPECT is particularly interested in working with organisations and individuals that can take an active part in both ASPECT events and the ASPECT online community. It is hoped that as many Associate Partners as possible will be able to participate in the practical implementation of standards and specifications being explored in the project (using their own content) and, based on this experience, contribute to the development of best practice related to this activity.

In order to register as an Associate Partner and be able to attend ASPECT events, organisations and individuals are asked to complete a short application form indicating why they are interested in joining the network and any particular skills or expertise they can offer to the network and other ASPECT members.

The ASPECT project finished in March 2011. As part of the development plan for the Learning Resource Exchange service for schools, European Schoolnet will continue to organise workshops and seminars related to educational content standards and specifications. If you would like to be kept informed of these events, please feel free to register here.
