McGraw-Hill Education Wants to Fix Ed Tech Interoperability
McGraw-HIll Education has designated their Tel Aviv-area technology innovation center as its company-wide interoperability hub. All the while, the innovation center must continue to adhere to the IMS Learning Tools Interoperability guidelines. Even though digital education’s sophistication has increased over the years, the flexibility has not.
Stephen Laster, the Chief Digital Officer of McGraw-HIll Education stated:
“Interoperability allows technology to fade into the background and helps bring teaching and learning to the forefront. Everything we know about what students and teachers want tells us that educators will almost always purchase technology from more than one company and that they want all of their educational tools to be able to work in harmony. That’s why we take interoperability so seriously.”
When edtech interoperability standards are industry-wide, teachers and students will be able to run virtually any learning solution on any major learning management system.
