IMS Europe Technical Meeting (October 2020)

Online

The second biannual IMS Europe Technical Meeting takes place over two half-days in October and you are invited.

All are welcome at the meeting on Wednesday, 14 October. The task force meetings on Friday, 16 October are for IMS Contributing Members only. Both meetings are online starting at 11:00 and ending at 15:00 CEST with a one-hour break for lunch. These meetings will appeal to a more technical audience like learning application developers and architects.

The meeting on Wednesday starts with a general update on the current technical development work at IMS, followed by an update of a few specific standards. On Friday, the IMS Europe Technical Task Force and the European Edu-API Task Force will meet.

Most of the sessions will be recorded and can be viewed or listened to afterward. There is no charge to participate, but you must register in advance.

Edu-API European Task Force

Colin Smythe, Chief Architect, IMS Global Learning Consortium
 
Edu-API is a standard model for the integration of core education enterprise data within higher education. This new standard is being developed in the international Edu-API Task Force. Visit the Edu-API Forum for task force notes.
 
There is a significant opportunity for IMS Europe and other members that have indicated they would like to participate in this task force to help shape this important specification. To accommodate this, we have started a European Task Force on Edu-API, that will work in parallel to the existing task force. Colin Smythe will be the link between the two teams. This is the first meeting of the Edu-API Task Force.
 
  • A short overview of the Edu-API standard
  • Update on the work of the task force so far
  • Brainstorm/discussion on content and next steps for the task force
