University of Wisconsin System (UWS) implemented a digital learning environment (DLE) founded on five core principles: it is accessible, provides analytics, supports collaboration, is interoperable, and allows personalization.This session focuses on how UWS developed a DLE with interoperable components—standards-based tools that work together seamlessly at the core rather than stapled together side-by-side. Leveraging IMS standards and App Vetting work, UWS developed a process that adheres to the DLE's core principles while supporting rapid tool integration. Students have access to the tools they need to be successful while mitigating many risks. The IMS App Vetting Rubric was used to identify key aspects of moving data through the DLE, including data security, third-party data sharing, and vendor marketing. UWS also requires vendors to agree to a contract addendum, which commits vendors to IMS standards, data privacy, and accessibility. Lessons learned from the UWS DLE Implementation project is also discussed.
