IMS Global Learning Consortium
In the last five years the mobile app has transformed and revolutionized software development by moving from a small number of large all-inclusive applications to hundreds of thousands of small, but focused, applications that provide specialized niche solutions. This session will describe a model for extending the app concept to learning objects and learning tools so that instructors and students can create custom learning solutions. The session will include discussion of relevant standards that make this possible and a new effort being launched by IMS Global to provide the necessary infrastructure for learning apps to flourish.
