Universities and colleges are increasing their collaboration with EdTech vendors to launch successful online programs. The Inside Higher Ed article, A Tipping Point for OPM?, accurately describes the advantages and disadvantages of this strategic endeavor. The article includes Unicon among leading vendors in this changing market landscape.
The recently published IMS App Note illustrates the collaborative development between IMS Global, Cengage, MoodleTM HQ, and Unicon to bring a new LTI specification into the MoodleTM core platform.
Initially, Moodle lacked a proper integration for Cengage's digital learning solution, MindTap. Rather than building a custom plugin, Cengage worked with Unicon and Moodle HQ to bring new LTI specifications into core Moodle.
