Introduction Benefits Applications Convergence Participation
Open Knowledge Initiative

Participating in the Global Learning Consortium

O.K.I. collaborates with leading organizations concerned with learning technology, including the IMS Global Learning Consortium and the Advanced Distributed Learning initiative, to define and extend its architectural framework.

O.K.I. actively influences the work of the larger learning technology standards community by communicating the requirements of higher education.

As the architecture matures, O.K.I. will work through IMS Global Learning Consortium to assist vendors in building the next generation of tools for the educational marketplace.

Influencing the evolution of the marketplace

Through the IMS Global Learning Consortium, the Open Knowledge Initiative supports software vendors and system integrators, encouraging them to move to modular products that target the specialized needs of different institutions and areas of study.

The O.K.I. architecture supports innovators in online education by focusing on modularity of services and integration in a learning environment, thereby freeing them from the constraints of one-size-fits-all commercial products.
