Focused on the interoperability in the learning markets worldwide, the IMS/GLC is a global and nonprofit association with more than 50 Contributing Members and affiliates: hardware and software vendors, educational institutions, publishers, government agencies, multimedia content providers, etc. Its main goal is to provide a neutral forum in which members work together to advocate the use of technology to support and transform education and learning. Some material is explicitly aimed at IT professionals and corporation executives while research papers can be useful to non-professional users too. Based on a sophisticated outline and managed by a professional team, the IMS website features — among its many options — many links pointing to both internal and external resources, a good use of graphical elements and dynamic features to sustain its usability, and options such as sitemap, RSS Feed, and a powerful keyword search. While most content is free and open to the public, a free registration to the IMS Community enables users to download specification charts and other pdf files. Membership in the IMS itself is reserved to a few fee-based levels. Drawing from a variety of sources around the world, overall this website is constantly updated and very useful for anybody involved in trends, practices and other issues related to IT-based learning projects.
