SAN FRANCISCO & BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cerego (www.cerego.com), a personalized learning technology company, has joined IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS Global), the world leader in EdTech interoperability and innovation, in its commitment to enable better digital learning experiences. Kicking off its involvement, Cerego is announcing with Cengage, an education and technology company, a collaboration around an industry-first implementation of IMS Global’s Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) Membership Service 1.0 specification.
Cerego and Cengage are the first two companies in the world to implement IMS LTI Membership Service 1.0. The specification enables features that make integration of learning tools with learning platforms more seamless, helping instructors save time and improving the learning experience across mobile devices.
“We’re honored to join IMS Global — Cerego is committed in enabling instructors to teach better and students to learn better through powerful yet simple-to-use learning innovations,” said Andrew Smith Lewis, CEO of Cerego. “By collaborating with Cengage to implement this vital LTI specification, we are laying the foundation for achieving seamless interoperability in all instructional applications used by instructors and students in education institutions nationwide.”
The new specification further strengthens the partnership between Cerego and Cengage by providing fluid interoperability experiences between Cerego’s products with the MindTap digital learning platform from Cengage.
“As the first learning platform to be certified for the IMS LTI Membership Service 1.0 specification, Cengage is again leading the industry in terms of interoperability and the utilization of standards,” said George Moore, Chief Technology Officer at Cengage. “Cengage is committed to creating flexible platforms that can seamlessly integrate third-party learning tools to increase convenience and optimize the experience for learners and instructors.”
The adoption of the new specification will enable features in learning management systems that were previously technically challenging and administratively cumbersome to implement. Features now include being able to effortlessly and automatically sync class rosters and grade books between platforms, allowing students to get credit for their work regardless of the platform on which they study.
