I was wondering if most installations of Moodle share data in real time or Batch at night with their Student Information Systems (SIS)?
The University where I work uses Banner 5 (upgrading to 7 late next year) and we currently intregate all administrative systems in real time. So, for example, a student enrolls - update banner, then their e-mail account is created, they are added to relevant forums, access is given for dial in access etc - all this happens in real time and the oracle database is updated accordingly.
We are looking into Moodle (as well as Sakai) and I would be interested in other peoples experiences integrating Moodle with their SIS in real time.
Thanks in anticipation of your responses.
