Just in case anyone fancied submitting their project for an IMS Learning Impact award.  The blurb says that:

The Learning Impact Awards (LIAs) are designed to recognize the most impactful use of technology worldwide in support of learning. This unique program, now in its fifth year, evaluates the use of technology in context to improve educational access, affordability, and quality.

You don't actually have to be using an IMS spec to apply, I think!

Cheers
Lorna
