Okay, well it's on my list of things to pursue, so watch this space.....
No doubt there will need to be some Bb philanthropy.... ;-)

Hi Mark

Sorry just to be clear Delft are doing a Scientia integration not SIMS.

Not sure if anyone is doing SIMS, but it seems there are a number of people who would like such a building block.

Perhaps resources could be pooled to get one built? or as was suggested see if Tribal are interested?

Hi

My mistake I have just spoken to Julie Usher and she is speaking to Delft about Blackboard to Scientia integration (timetables).

So to move this forward re SITS does anyone have any suggestions how we could move this forward Nationally?

We did some work on this at Northumbria a few years ago.
 
We were able to extract module assignment structure from SITS and import into Blackboard Gradebook so a separate column was created for each part of a module&#8217;s summative assessment as described in the module descriptor.
 
Marks were then entered in Gradebook and extracted and successfully imported into marks record database in SITS.
 
However, the process was very slow, took five minutes to import 500 records into SITS plus a large number of error messages were generated, e.g. mark missing.
 
A decision was taken not to pursue further development work with SITS, mainly for internal political reasons.
 
However, it does sound as if a number of institutions would be interested in pursuing this. Is it worth collectively contacting Tribal to see what can be done?

We'd certainly be interested in this as well. 
 
We've used SQL to write back marks for a 'proof of concept' test recently, but we'd prefer to not re-invent the wheel for mark write-back

Does this building block require this?

Hi

There has been some discussion about this and I understand University of Delft have a building Block.

I believe that Julie Usher at Northampton is going to contact them about it.

I think that a lot of people are interested in this and it would be great if we could get some National co-ordination on it.

Morning all,

Does anyone have, or know of, a way to transfer grades from Bb Grade Centre directly into SITS (student record sytem)?
