CASE Network Alliance Membership
IMS Global Learning Consortium provides a CASE Network Alliance Membership to support edtech suppliers in shifting to the use of CASE as the specification for articulating academic standards and workforce competencies and CASE Network as a single, verifiable, trusted source of learning standards and workforce competencies in digital format. States, school districts, and other issuers of official learning standards are publishing to the CASE Network. The CASE Network Alliance enables suppliers and institutions to certify the use of CASE and agree to preserve the CASE Network's unique identifiers. This ensures issuers that learning resources align with their official standards.
