Cengage Learning, a leading global provider of innovative teaching, learning and research solutions, today announced increased commitment to The IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS) demonstrating continued support of the IMS mission to advance technology that can affordably scale and improve educational participation and attainment. Building on a strong relationship with IMS, Cengage Learning has volunteered to provide leadership in furthering IMS standards in the critical area of Learning Outcomes. Cengage Learning will be adding more members to existing workgroups, and will be releasing more Common Cartridge courses following participation in conformance testing.

“Cengage Learning recognizes that forward thinking and digital innovations will help lead to solutions which support improved student outcomes and engagement, and we share IMS’ vision of ensuring that the full Learning Impact of these innovations is achieved around the world,” said Curtiss Barnes, Vice President, Corporate Development for Cengage Learning, and current IMS Board Member. “Our increased participation with IMS further demonstrates our dedication to finding ways to effectively harness the potential power of new technologies in education and we are excited to provide leadership and expertise on learning outcomes.”

“IMS is pleased that Cengage is committed to providing IMS standards at the core of their digital products,” commented Dr. Rob Abel, Chief Executive Officer of IMS. “As education transitions from print to digital alternatives, including powerful formative assessment applications, leadership on standards is essential to enable seamless integration and maximum insight regarding student progress.”

In addition to activity tied to the common cartridge process, Cengage Learning will be participating in panel presentations and will be serving as a moderator at the 2011 Learning Impact Conference in Long Beach, CA. Cengage Learning’s Course360 Custom Course Solutions using IMS Common Cartridge were named as a finalist in the 2011 Learning Impact Awards, an awards program facilitated by IMS to recognize outstanding applications of technology that address the most significant challenges facing the global education and training industries.

To satisfy growing customer demand, Cengage Learning has a developed a proven methodology to deliver its Course360 products via the Common Cartridge model. Courses have been tested through the IMS Common Cartridge validator and have received IMS- compliant certification. Cengage Learning is currently fulfilling customer course adoptions using Common Cartridge.

Furthermore, Cengage Learning will be adding a member to participate in the ongoing Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) working group. LTI aims to improve interaction between external tools/applications/systems, whether enterprise or web-based, and learning/course management systems.
