IMS Global Learning1|(IMS) was established by a consortium of universities and companies in order to ensure that the market for global distributed learning could leverage the benefits of the Web. The principal intervention made by IMS to achieve this goals has been to develop and publish specifications for eLearning interoperability. The initial focus of IMS was on interoperability of learning objects, and the specifications which they published for this purpose (such as IMS Content Packaging and Learning Object Metadata), together with applications such as RELOAD, made a substantial contribution to the ability of applications to share learning resources.
