“I can see for miles and miles and miles.” – The Who

We’re all impatient and getting more impatient all the time. We’re all looking for time well spent. But, we also want to be prepared for the future. How do you achieve both?

Leading the way to next generation digital learning environments: Use-cases and new product categories

What are education sector realities telling us about the likely evolution toward next generation digital learning environments?

Deeper dive on next generation digital learning environment (NGDLE) interoperability: part b: interoperable app outputs

#5 of a series in preparation for May 2016 Learning Impact Leadership Institute

After a 1-week pause to focus on the release of the IMS Annual Report, I’m back at the topic of the anatomy of an educational or learning app.

Changing the Game to Accelerate EdTech Innovation

With the release this week of the IMS Global Annual Report 2015, I wanted to attempt to summarize some ways in which “our little engine of change” is helping to enable some potentially pretty profound stuff.

What interoperability will next generation digital learning environments (NGDLEs) require?

#3 of a series in preparation for May 2016 Learning Impact Leadership Institute

Now we begin to get into some of the meatier topics when it comes to evolving from the world of today to next generation digital learning environments.

What are good metaphors for thinking about Next Generation Digital Learning Environments (NGDLEs)?

#2 of a series in preparation for May 2016 Learning Impact Leadership Institute

In the 2015 EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative research paper on the Next Generation Digital Learning Environment (NGDLE) the familiar metaphor of legos is once again called upon to represent user configurable learning environments:

Working Together on Enabling Next Generation Digital Learning Environments (NGDLEs)

#1 of a series

There is a lot of excitement and curiosity regarding the concepts introduced in the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) research paper on the Next Generation Digital Learning Environment (NGDLE), which was based on focus group interactions with some 50-100 higher education edtech leaders.  I attended most of the focus group sessions myself, which also had great representation from IMS member organizations.

Takeaways from 1st IMS Global Quarterly Meetings of 2016
