Lake Mary, Florida, USA – 10 May 2011 – The 1EdTech Consortium (1EdTech) today announced the release of the 1EdTech annual report for 2010. The annual report is available to the public online at: /pressreleases/imsglc2010report.pdf

1EdTech is a non-profit member consortium of institutional, government, and supplier organizations across K-20 chartered to advance technology that can affordably scale and improve educational participation and attainment. 1EdTech has historically been the leading developer of technical interoperability standards for education technology since its origination by a group of U.S. higher education institutions in the mid-1990’s. Over the last several years, 1EdTech has experienced growth by providing a very effective process for collaboration – not only on standards – but also on large scale of adoption of technologies to support the movement from print to digital in education. Use of 1EdTech standards at the core of the educational enterprise enables suppliers and end-users to focus on innovation.

1EdTech also conducts a unique global conference and competition focused on the Learning Impact that technology can support and enable. Learning Impact 2011 will be held in Long Beach, CA, USA, May 16-19. The 2011 conference has already achieved record sponsorships and attendance.

“The 1EdTech standards are making it easier for suppliers to work with each other and, most importantly, are creating a seamless experience for teachers and students - so technology can ‘get out of the way’ by being supportive, yet invisible,” said David Ernst, Chairman of the Board, Associate Vice President and CIO, University of California, Office of the President. “The 1EdTech community is laying the foundation for efficiency, innovation, and insight in the use of educational technology to support the improvement of education at all levels.”

“We would not have predicted record performance in 2010 given the strong headwinds resulting from the worldwide global recession,” said Dr. Rob Abel, Chief Executive. “In fact, even as we enter 2011 the pressures on governments and institutions to deal with reductions in funding are greater than they have ever been. Our results speak to the vital relevancy of the 1EdTech work in addressing critical educational challenges.”
