The App as a Metaphor for Learning Objects and Tools

Thursday, October 02 | 9:00AM–9:50AM | Meeting Room W205A
Session Type: Professional Development
The "App Store" model has provided consumers with limitless choice and flexibility in customizing the user experience. Thanks to open standards, such as Learning Tools Interoperability®, we're beginning to see that same kind of flexibility enter the education app space. Additionally, open standards are now helping to "future proof" institutional investments in LMS frameworks, e-portfolios, and even student information systems. Is this the beginning of a significant shift in the education application landscape? Join panelists for a discussion about the implications of app portability across platforms to create custom learning experiences.
