Abstract: This chapter analyzes, from an instructional engineering (IE) viewpoint, the concept of an Educational Modeling Language (EML). The work on EMLs and its subsequent integration into the IMS Learning Design Specification is the most important initiative to date aiming to integrate instructional design (ID) preoccupations in the international standards movement. On the other hand, ID has evolved to what can be termed “IE”, integrating ID, software and cognitive engineering processes and principles. It has much in common with Educational Modeling Languages, sharing a software engineering and cognitive science approach. The main difference comes from the fact that IE is a methodology mostly concerned with the processes and principles that will produce good specifications of a learning system, in particular, EML specifications. Our goal here is to find out how an IE method could be adapted to and synchronized with a learning design specification standard like EML/IMS-LD and, conversely, how such a method could contribute to the evolution and use of a learning design standard.
