The IMS standards are a critical component of Houston ISD’s digital transformation. Not only do IMS Global standards create a more effective teaching and learning environment, they also provide effective and economic solutions. Historically, HISD has built customized rostering integrations to suit each learning tool vendor’s individual needs, an extremely expensive, time-consuming and resource-intensive approach. Now that we have adopted IMS Global’s OneRoster standard, we anticipate reducing requirements gathering and development time by 75% - 95% for new rostering integration requests.
What is your digital curriculum strategy? IMS Global members are getting to the future faster by enabling a sustainable integrated digital curriculum.
IMS Interoperability standards enable various types of digital curriculum resources and learning tools to be seamlessly integrated into enterprise software that institutions already have or are adding.
Interoperability across enterprise systems and applications enables easy access to a variety of digital resources and supports personalized instruction and faculty choice.
Seamless access via IMS standards means that faculty and students can focus on teaching and learning.
Once IMS-certified connectivity is established data can smoothly flow across systems to help faculty, students, parents and administrators achieve a better learning experience.
