IMS Japan Society is a NPO/NGO which develops and disseminate IT technology standards for Education.
for All Learners
Toward the realization of "fairly individually optimized learning"
The Japan IMS Association was established in 2016 by Japanese universities and companies that participate in the IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS Global), an international standardization organization.
More than 20 technical standards developed and published by IMS Global are not only learning management systems (LMS) but also various educational information systems such as educational (school affairs) systems, examination systems, digital credential systems, curriculum and syllabus management systems. Covers and enhances interoperability between systems.
The Japan IMS Association is promoting the spread of IMS technical standards mainly in Japan with the aim of realizing "fairly individually optimized learning".
IMS technical standards connect everything.
Three Key Words for future learning
What is needed to provide an optimal and comfortable learning process for learners with diverse interests, learning histories and achievements?
The first thing you need is a variety of content materials and component tools. Next, each person's learning history and latest data, as well as learning goals and evaluation criteria such as curriculum and syllabus. Finally, artificial intelligence (AI) predicts the optimal pathway and learning process.
IMS Global is trying to make it a digital ecosystem in which more people can participate.
In addition, it is necessary to guarantee interoperability so that various materials and tools can be freely combined.
A new “learning” platform that guarantees individual optimization is also considered to be effective in a digital ecosystem that brings together the power of the community to realize it in a sustainable manner. Even if the vendors are different, it is necessary to easily combine materials and parts and exchange data between systems, and the agreement to guarantee such interoperability is the international technical standard.
