Infinite Campus Brings LMS Flexibility to Customers with IMS Global Certification
January 14, 2016 – Blaine, Minn. – Infinite Campus now offers two Learning Management System (LMS) options: 1) native LMS functionality within its core student information system (SIS), and 2) a connection to third party LMS products using the OneRoster™ standard from IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS Global). Districts can use both methods simultaneously giving them the most features, flexibility and ease of use at the lowest total cost of ownership.
Obtaining IMS Global Conformance Certification (www.imscert.org) allows Infinite Campus to offer the IMS OneRoster standard and provide connectivity between Infinite Campus and participating LMS vendors that support the standard. OneRoster provides a method by which the LMS can access all necessary organizational, course, roster and learning activity data from external systems, thus significantly streamlining the exchange of roster data. Infinite Campus has also extended to the API to allow grades to be passed back to the SIS from the LMS.
We’re committed to providing the best learning management features in Infinite Campus. The IMS OneRoster interoperability standard is for districts that want to use a third-party LMS as well. We now support that, without diminishing the power of Campus integration,” says Charlie Kratsch, Founder and CEO of Infinite Campus. “The best part for our customers is that we’re including support for the OneRoster at no additional cost. We’re giving our customers even more ways to realize the benefits of Infinite Campus.”
Infinite Campus has been building LMS functionality within its core product for many years. Campus Instruction tools give teachers access to powerful features like online assignments, online assessments, discussions, grade book, planner, electronic file attachments and Google Drive integration directly within the existing Infinite Campus platform.
