Syllabus Interviews IMS CEO
Scott Wilson, CETIS staff
April 11, 2002

Syllabus magazine this month features an interview with Ed Walker, CEO of the IMS Global Learning Consortium.

In the interview Walker announces the new conformance testing initiatives that IMS is undertaking, and gives his thoughts on issues including vendor compliance, and the relationship between IMS and other initiatives including ADL and MIT's Open Knowledge Initiative.

Walker also identifies the need for users to participate in standards. CETIS has been representing the UK Higher and Further Education user communities at IMS for the past four years, as have some major universities in the US and Canada. However, other users - particularly in corporate eLearning - have been conspicuous by their absence.

The complete interview is available from the Syllabus website.
