This paper outlines research being undertaken as part of a Teaching Company Scheme programme based on the Isle of Skye. It examines the rationale for using an Educational Modelling Language, such as the one defined by the Open University of the Netherlands (OUNL), and evaluates its potential role in delivering effective electronic learning environ-ments for the teaching of minority languages. The uptake of EML as a practical solution to the needs of educational content developers is discussed, and some systems which offer different standards are summarised.
