>PS for ASP, how is connnection with your SIMS managed?
For integration with Blackboard, our SIMS database generates three files each morning at 3 am or so: users.lst, courses.lst, and enroll.lst. It sends them to a server and Blackboard picks them up at 4 am. Blackboard then dumps the data into our Bb database.
-- A course shell is created for each course in the complete list of course sections for each semester
-- Instructors are automatically assigned to their course sections, as long as they are listed as the Official Instructor of Record
-- Students who add and drop courses via TouchTone or online registration are enrolled or dropped from the appropriate courses
This is nice because instructors no longer have to request to make a shell and students do not have to self-enroll. We are hoping to do the same exact thing with Moodle.
