 IMS GLC Quarterly Meetings and SOA and Enterprise Learning Integration: Challenges and Solutions through Interoperability Summit (Continued)


Thursday, 22 October
                    SOA and Enterprise Learning Integration:
                    Challenges and Solutions through Interoperability Summit                            Room: Conf. Center 102-103
Enterprise integration has never been more important for education. Service oriented computing has become the dominant approach
for achieving such integration but there are still many challenges to overcome. At the same time the return on investment for such
an approach is still unclear. In the past few months IMS has released several works to improve enterprise integration including:
* The “Learning Information Services (LIS) Specification” – defines how a wide range of student and course information can be
exchanged between learning and administration systems;
* The “Basic Learning Technology Interoperability Specification (BasicLTI)” – providing a simple mechanism by which third party tools
can be launched and interact with a learning management system;
* The “Adoption of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) for Enterprise Systems in Education: Recommended Practices” White Paper –
recommended practices for the adoption of SOA to improve interoperability to realize cost savings and to align IT services more
closely with the educational services for the institution.
During this Summit we will look at the set of enterprise integration challenges that face education, including: identity management,
user provisioning and outcomes reporting. We will explain how the current best practice deployment approaches can provide a signif-
icant improvement on managing and delivering learning. Finally, we will look at how we will continue to improve enterprise integra-
tion for education.
