“It was on May 22 of 2018 that I met Marten [Roorda] in a hotel lobby in Baltimore… we sat knee-to-knee in some comfy chairs and had a conversation about learning resources, a conversation about free content, a conversation about a transformation that a really cool organization in Iowa City is doing, moving from being an assessment organization into becoming a learning company.”

Randy Wilhelm, former CEO of Knovation and ACT’s vice president of Learning Resources, shared this story and more at a Power Hour on January 9. Read the recap or watch the full recording.

OER Metadata Collection Integration Use Cases

Through IMS Global Learning Consortium, Knovation has partnered with educational technology leaders like SchoolCity, Inc. and future forward School Districts like Houston Independent School District to advance the reality of seamless integration of learning resources through the LTI Resource Search Initiative.

The great thing about using the (LTI Resource Search) standard is that we can set this up with a very small amount of code.
