Testimonials

We believe that open technologies, embedded in an open ecosystem, lead to better outcomes for the teachers and learners. Without open standards and the educational ecosystem those standards enable, we simply could not meet the needs of our users. IMS Global fosters these open standards and empowers educational innovation, and we are incredibly proud of our ongoing work and collaboration with IMS Global.

Integrations between our third-party content providers and LMS used to take three months. After requiring our content providers to adopt the IMS Learning Tools Interoperability standard our integration time went down to just three business days, generating a savings of roughly $40,000 per integration.

IMS Global is probably the best-kept secret in edtech today, and one of my goals as an educational leader is to help them become the norm for digital unification! The efforts to unify the flow of data of all types between the vast programs out there and set standards for all educational digital tools is absolutely necessary because it is what's best for our students. Neosho School District is absolutely committed to adopting all IMS standards.
