Today in InformationWeek, our Chief Digital Officer Stephen Laster writes about the importance of interoperability in education technology and offers LEGO as a model for ensuring that instructors and institutions are able to easily pair and transition from technologies from different providers -- without impacting class time.

"With a common standard of interoperability," Laster writes, "students could focus on learning, teachers on teaching, and developers on designing the best teaching and learning software possible, rather than on redesigning yet another platform. Even something as simple as consolidating multiple system logins into a single platform could save hours of wasted class time."
