Moodle and Colleague by Ellucian customers can now synchronize lifecycle data with ease from Lingk’s wizard-based synchronization app

Danville, CA (PRWeb) August 17, 2017 -

Lingk Inc. today announced LingkSync for Moodle and Colleague by Ellucian. Lingk has partnered with Remote-Learner, a leading provider of open source Moodle solutions, to empower institutions and businesses to connect with their students, customers, partners and employees in entirely new ways. Lingk is the provider of wizard-based LingkSync integration apps for fast and deep lifecycle integrations. The LingkSync app enables data from the Colleague student management system to be easily synchronized with the Moodle learning platform.

Built on the Lingk Platform, LingkSync for Moodle and Colleague will be available in the LingkExchange marketplace which offers access to a wide array of productized education integrations. Each integration in the LingkExchange provides a fast wizard-based experience to complete student lifecycle integrations.

LingkSync for Moodle® and Colleague® Key Features

Moodle Admins

Moodle Admins using the LingkSync app can easily add Colleague SIS (Student Information System) data into their Moodle implementation to power new analytic insights, dashboards, reports, workflow automations and notifications supporting user requests for more student lifecycle data. Current integration approaches are brittle, perform slowly, and do not provide deep access to SIS data for LMS (Learning Management System) analytics. The LingkSync app provides a unique first-of-its-kind wizard-based and self-service configuration experience for Moodle Admins to quickly gain access to an expansive amount of Student Lifecycle data without the need for costly, time-consuming and complex integration projects. Data syncing can be run manually or automatically at scheduled intervals for increased freshness.

Moodle End Users

Moodle End Users will have immediate access to an extensive amount of SIS data fields from their Moodle implementation to allow them to build new and enhanced views, dashboards and reports to gain powerful insights. With access to more student lifecycle data, users can create new use cases that help to automate and transform their work.
