openSIS + Moodle
openSIS is bi-directionally integrated with Moodle LMS in the code level using REST-API specifications. It supports Moodle versions 1.9 thru 3.4.x
The two applications are integrated in the following areas:
Users » When a new student, teacher or staff is created in openSIS , they are automatically created in Moodle. For existing users, there is a check box option and when it is checked, the user gets created in Moodle.
Course Manager » openSIS courses are divided into three levels. Subject, Course and Course Period. We have provided the ability to synchronize each level into Moodle as it is created.
Student Schedule » In openSIS, when students are scheduled in a class period that also exist in Moodle, all students are automatically synchronized in Moodle with proper authentication. Students get access to that class and all its contents. The teacher who is teaching the class gets to see all those students enrolled in the Moodle course. The system even creates the calendar weeks in Moodle based on the begin and end dates of the marking period (in openSIS) in which the course period is offered.
Teacher Grade Book » When a Course period is created in openSIS with the option to create in Moodle, a default Assignment category called Moodle is created within the openSIS Grade book This category synchronizes Teacher activities from Moodle in the form of Assignments, Lessons and Quizzes. All grades given in Moodle gets automatically pulled into openSIS.
In openSIS, a Teacher can look at progress report that will show grades from openSIS and Moodle. When the final grades are created for report cards, there is an option to import grade book grades. When you do so, your Moodle grades get factored in. Therefore, if you are using Moodle for graded assignments, you can combine the grades in openSIS and Moodle to give the student a combined grade.
Alternately, if a Teacher wants to exclude the grades from Moodle, he/she can put an asterisk (*) in the assignment to exclude it from the calculation.
