Once upon a time known as 'Instructional Management Systems', IMS Global has renamed itself to the 1EdTech Consortium. "The 1EdTech brand reflects the passion of our community in working together to achieve what none of us can achieve on our own," said Rob Abel is a statement that explained absolutely nothing. There's a video you can watch that actually muddies the water. The '1' seems to refer to a "united ecosystem" that is "owned by all education participants and stakeholders, enabling both public and private good." There's also a new logo that I sincerely hope they didn't pay too much for (and perhaps someone could explain why they've reversed the direction of the arrows).
