As institutions transition to including digital to create richer learning experiences there is growing demand for easy access to a wide variety of digital applications and exchange of content and information among systems to support personalized learning. Via the IMS Integrated and Effective Digital Curriculum Initiative, IMS members are defining what it means to offer an effective, flexible and integrated digital curriculum.
