In 2005 a collaborative project was launched to develop a web-based
task repository to facilitate sharing of instructional media created
in accordance with the AIMS standard. Task categories will include,
but not be limited to, Educational, Vocational, Independent Living,
Recreation and Leisure, and Community Access. This project is being
conducted by AbleLink Technologies in collaboration with the Beach Center
on Disability at the University of Kansas and the Coleman Institute
for Cognitive Disabilities through the University of Colorado's Rehabilitation
Engineering Research Center on Advancing Cognitive Technologies.
