How can we take edtech to the level of plug-and-play that institutions want and need? Hear how the IMS community is working together to "lower the tax" on interoperability. This session introduces OneRoster Compatibility Check and what organizations like GG4L are doing to give districts access to the tools, standards, and industry experts you need to deploy safe, secure, compliant digital learning technology.
“If your district is using a proprietary platform for data interoperability it's not going to cost you anything extra to take a plunge into this open standards world...and start future-proofing your IT infrastructure.”
Yes, I would like to learn more about GG4L!

Robert Iskander indicates the need to move beyond simple synchronous classes and become clearer in setting expectations for completion. He believes there is a much more integrated hybrid approach taking shape for the fall and beyond. Proprietary product APIs are a luxury that institutions can no longer afford as they create their plug-and-play ecosystems to get to the future. IMS enables that ecosystem.
"Online learning and being able to do synchronous and asynchronous remote learning is going to be here for many, many years to come. It is never going to go away. I think what just happened is a paradigm shift in education. Finally, people are saying; you know what, we should have done this a long time ago. Now we're compelled to do it, [we] mind as well just do it and learn, and I don't think they're going to look back ever to the traditional way of teaching."
