IMS Learning Information Services


This document describes the IMS Learning Information Services and the methods supported by Cirrus Assessment.

In the words of the IMS Global Learning Consortium, Inc.:

The Learning Information Services (LIS) specification is the definition of how systems manage the exchange of information that describes people, groups, memberships, courses and outcomes within the context of learning. The LIS v2.0 specification supersedes the IMS Global Enterprise Services v1.0 specification. The LIS specification is based upon the aggregation of the Person Management, Group Management, Membership Management, Course Management, Outcomes Management and the Bulk Data Exchange Management Services specifications. The LIS v2.0 can be implemented using a Web Services infrastructure (based upon a SOAP/http transport mechanism). The Learning Information Services specification is constructed following the recommendations documented in the IMS Abstract Framework ..
