TAO Now A Contributing Member of IMS Global Learning Consortium

Given its Open-Source oriented strategy with the mission to work for the common good in education, TAO has been compliant with the IMS standard, Question and Test Interoperability (QTI), since 2011.  And now, we have taken it a step further by becoming Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) compliant as well.

The mission of the IMS Global Learning Consortium is to advance technology that can affordably scale and improve educational participation and attainment. To ensure that the “Learning Impact” of technology-enabled innovation is achieved around the world, IMS’s influential community of educational institutions, suppliers, and government organizations develops open interoperability standards, supports adoption with technical services, and encourages adoption through programs that highlight effective practices.

“We are delighted to be a Contributing Member of IMS,” says Marc Oswald, CEO and Co-Founder of Open Assessment Technologies, the maker of TAO.

“TAO’s Open Source nature enables our users to create powerful and effective computer-based tests on a large scale, without the constraints of proprietary software. We are honored to be part of the close-knit IMS community and look forward to contributing our expertise to the advancement of application and content interoperability.”
