An Evolving Technology Landscape for Competency-Based Education

by Mark Leuba, EDUCAUSE Review

Despite a late start, established and start-up competency-based education vendors have begun to provide technical tools to support CBE. This update on the Technical Interoperability Pilot project reports on progress developing interoperable solutions and offers cautionary advice to the CBE institutional and vendor community: avoid complacency and press on, quickly. This article recaps the latest and final planned results of the Technical Interoperability Pilot (TIP) project, a research and development initiative funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and originally introduced in fall 2015 in this publication. The TIP project, a collaboration of the Competency-Based Education Network (C-BEN) and IMS Global Learning Consortium, has the goal of speeding interoperable CBE technology support to the higher education market.
