Higher Education Playbook

Higher Education Playbook Resources

 

The Higher Education Playbook is intended to help institutions streamline the learning curve around open standards and creating an integrated plug-and-play edtech ecosystem. The Playbook is designed to be an easy-to-use reference and resource center for academic and IT leaders, curriculum and education technologists, IT specialists, and development teams. These resources are created by institutional leaders of the IMS Global HED Innovation Leadership Networks. They are organized by the categories that guide the work of the communities and complement IMS Global technical work.
