The second biannual technical IMS Europe Technical Meeting takes place over two half-days in October.

You are invited to attend this IMS Europe Technical Meeting on Wednesday 14 October 2020 (all welcome) and on Friday 16 October 2020 (IMS Contributing members only). Both meetings are online.

The meeting on October 14 will start with a general update on the current technical development work at IMS, followed by an update of a few specific standards. On October 16 there will on-site meetings of the IMS Europe Technical Task Force and the European Edu-API Task Force. These Task Force meetings  are open to IMS Contributing Members only.

The technical meetings will appeal to a more technical audience like learning application developers and architects.

Edu-API is a standard model for the integration of core education enterprise data within higher education. This new standard is being developed in the international Edu-API Task Force. Visit the Edu-API Forum for task force notes.
 
There is a significant opportunity for IMS Europe and other members that have indicated they would like to participate in this task force to help shape this important specification. To accommodate this, we have started a European Task Force on Edu-API, that will work in parallel to the existing task force. Colin Smythe will be the link between the two teams. This is the first meeting of the Edu-API Task Force.
 
  • Short overview of the Edu-API standard
  • Update on the work of the taskforce so far
  • Brainstorm/discussion on content and next steps for the taskforce
