From Learning Objects to Learning Impact: An Update on the IMS Global Learning Consortium

Monday, June 4, 2007


In a short 10 years, the Internet may not have "changed everything" as was predicted, but it certainly has impacted approaches to learning and learning facilitation. In this talk, Rob Abel, educational researcher and CEO of the IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS GLC), provides some insights on what we may have learned from the past 10 years and what it may mean for the next 10 years of learning technology and learning technology standards. Discussion topics will include IMS GLC's new focus on innovation, adoption, and, most important, learning impact. This talk will draw from the latest IMS GLC research in the satisfaction and use of learning technology in the U.S. higher education segment, indicating trends in digital content and learning platforms, and the most recent Learning Impact Awards.
