IMS Global Learning Consortium

An organisation that produces specifications.

The IMS Global Learning Consortium is the most advanced group developing learning technology interoperability specifications. Since its formation as an Educom project in 1997, it has developed a membership that includes almost all the leading technology system suppliers, publishers and many user organisations including leading US universities active in eLearning. It has since become an independent, subscription-based non-profit organisation, and has recently launched a subsidiary, IMS Europe. While it aims to be technology and pedagogy neutral, it inevitably has to represent the interests of its subscribers. This is why the active participation of user organisations is crucial, and why JISC's membership and CETIS' activities have made it possible for UK interests to be represented.
