Is your institution ready for next generation digital learning environments, featuring plug and play digital resources, learning tools, real-time analytics, competencies? IMS Global Learning Consortium along with its institutional members and partners, such as WCET, are collaborating to create an open ecosystem that will help institutions build flexible and sustainable learning environments that are needed to foster digital innovation. This session will look at some of the specific interoperability pain-points that get in the way of innovation and how IMS standards can help address these challenges. We will also explore some of the gaps that often sit at the intersection between the campus leadership, the curriculum, and technology standards and how the IMS Communities of Practice are helping to fill these by developing resources to help colleges and universities shape tomorrow’s ed-tech ecosystem.
