Embracing Openness: using open source and open standards to power up your learning ecosystem
LTI, xAPI, SCORM, oh my - so many acronyms, why even try to keep track? Most organisations and teams use multiple systems, making sure that they can all talk to each other easily and efficiently will make your job easier and your users happier. One way to do that is to make sure the systems you purchase or subscribe to support standards that are consistent across products.
How does open source fit into this equation? Open source solutions are early adopters of standards, so enterprise open source solutions can be the glue that holds all your various systems together.
Explore common standards and what types of integrations/solutions they cover. Identify existing open source within your organisation and the value added by enterprise open source solutions. Learn questions to ask about standards support when evaluating new tools and solutions
