Eleven months ago, I wrote a post about Instructure entering its “awkward teenage years.” That was a setup for the inevitable alternative metaphor that was coming, along with Instructure’s inevitable fall from grace. Now that they’re off the pedestal, it’s time to address the crazy way we talk about ed tech companies.
The IMS has been amazingly successful. I take a deep dive into both the what and the why, and then look at how the next challenge of learning analytics is going to mean the next decade of interoperability work will be different from the last one.
As promised in my last post, I describe my model for creating a new economy of contribution and collaboration from ed tech vendors, and how I hope to pay for e-Literate (and part of my mortgage) in the process.
e-Literate is changing its URL, its look and feel and, most importantly, is morphing into a much broader organization with multiple functions. This post provides an overview of the new world.
Everything old is new again
Act 1 ends. Act 2 begins.
The revolution will be televised. Eventually. For now, there will be audio.
