IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS Global/IMS), the non-profit collaborative supporting educational technology innovation, impact and interoperability announced that it is launching the One EdTech Ecosystem™ (1EdTech™) initiative, a collaboration between school districts and suppliers that will make it easier for school districts to make digital resources and applications available to teachers and students.
1EdTech consists of a secure trusted cloud-based registry and connection service that will enable any educational technology provider to connect to any school district’s learning platform, portal, or student system using the IMS OneRoster standard. Once a participant organization has integrated they will be able to connect to any of the institutions or suppliers on the other side. 1EdTech will be free to all IMS member organizations that have OneRoster certified products.
A list of Frequently Asked Questions regarding 1EdTech is available on the 1EdTech website.
