About IMS Global
The mission of the IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS Global/IMS) is to advance technology that can affordably scale and improve educational participation and attainment. To ensure that the “Learning Impact” of technology-enabled innovation is achieved around the world, IMS Global’s influential community of educational institutions, suppliers, and government organizations develops open interoperability standards, supports adoption with technical services, and encourages adoption through programs that highlight effective practices.
IMS Global Learning Consortium is a highly effective nonprofit, member organization that strives to enable the adoption and impact of innovative learning technology. The IMS open architecture and extensive ecosystem of edtech products enable education institutions to be more innovative, provide a more seamless user experience, and dramatically reduce the cost of integrating products into the educational enterprise systems.
IMS members participate in any or all of the aspects of the IMS work: from standards creation to adoption of edtech innovation to large-scale deployment of technology to achieve learning impact (improving access, affordability, and quality of learning). The interaction and feedback among these three “stages” of market adoption are critical to the success of the open architecture and the fostering of new opportunities throughout the sector.
