Boston, Nov. 21, 2016 - itslearning, a leading learning management system provider, today announced that it has achieved IMS Global Conformance Certification for the OneRoster standard certification.
With itslearning adoption of the OneRoster standard, a turnkey integration can exist with any student information system (SIS) that implements the standard. This means educators will no longer need to manually access and enter this data from itslearning to their SIS, but instead will have a consistently connected platform enabling a more streamlined teaching process and increased accuracy between platforms.
“itslearning is a proud member of the IMS Global Learning Consortium,” said Tom Shoemaker, CMO, itslearning. “And this seal of approval signifies our commitment to effective ‘plug and play’ integration with other IMS Global certified vendors which in turn will make our solution as easy and accessible as possible to our partner schools and districts.”
