Projects Currently in Incubation

The following projects are currently incubating in the Apereo Incubation Process. Please visit the Projects and Communities page for more information as it becomes availible. 

EDexchange, a project of the Postsecondary Electronic Standards Council (PESC) Common Data Services (CDS) Task Force of over 30 institutions and vendors, aims to create a secure network for the exchange of transcripts between US educational institutions. The the open source, web service based software EDexchange creates has the potential to be utilized to setup secure networks to exchange education data regionally and locally in many countries.

Image Quiz
The goal of the Image Quiz Project is to increase comprehension of complex subjects through visual learning. This goal is accomplished through the development of a series of computer-based visual training programs under the working title Image Quiz. Programs in the Image Quiz family are designed to rapidly help users become visual experts. Unlike novices, visual experts are able to quickly recognize patterns. This allows chess masters to recognize meaningful chess configurations, and field biologists to identify organism from a mere glance.

Learning Analytics Processor
The Learning Analytics Processor project is aimed at accelerating the future of predictive learning analytics through the development of a flexible and highly scalable tool that will facilitate everything from academic early alert systems to data visualizations. Along with this powerful“big data” tool will come a library of open predictive models which can be shared across higher education free of licensing costs and, most importantly,allow institutions to collaborate on enhancing and improving these models over time. The project entered incubation in June 2015. More information will follow shortly.

OpenLRS is an source Java based Learning Record Store ( which is compatible with TinCanAPI ( and Experience API ( The project entered incubation in June 2015. More information will follow shortly.

OpenDashboard is a web application that provides a framework for displaying visualizations and data views called "cards". Cards represent a single discrete visualization or data view but share an API and data model. OpenDashboard is a Java application built with Spring Boot. The project entered incubation in June 2015. More information will follow shortly.

POET is a group of people and organizations that believe in the power of open source to innovate and advance their learning and educational solutions. By working together under a single organization, POET’s members can provide additional resources to help advance the open source projects that matter to them.
