CASE in Action: A Better Way to Connect Academic Standards and Competencies through Digital Delivery

Event Date: Wednesday, 20 September 2017, 1:00 p.m. (ET)

Learning standards or competencies guide instructors to focus learning on critical thinking, problem-solving, and mastery of digital age skills. Strong academic standards help ensure that students receive coherent preparation aligned with the demands of the real world.

States and higher education institutions often publish their standards in static pdf files. This presents challenges for technology vendors who must ingest the standards into their platforms, applications, and tools. It also presents risks for educators concerned that their learning standards may be interpreted by a third party.

This is why IMS Global Learning Consortium members have developed a framework for publishing learning standards and competencies in a digital, machine-readable format. This new technical standard is called Competencies and Academic Standards Exchange™ (CASE™).

Attend this webinar to hear from organizations that are adopting CASE to make it easier and faster to use learning standards, and learn how to convert existing learning standards to the CASE format using open-source tools from practitioners who have already made the transition.
