Prerequisites for LMS integration


In order to implement or migrate to a new LMS provider or tool, the following information must be available:

  1. Authentication information - 
    • After implementation, the LMS connection details can be viewed and managed/updated by SS&E Administrators from LMS Integration Configuration Administration.
  2. LMS course id/short name format
    • The course id or short name must contain enough information to identify course sections as defined in the SIS. This generally means academic term, course code, and section information. 
    • If used, merged/combined courses must have a course id/short name that can be used to identify all relevant sections.
  3. Data
    • The LMS that is being integrated with must have production course sections that can be used for verification purposes.
  4. LMS Configuration
    • The LMS must be configured in advance to allow appropriate communication with SS&E. This includes, but is not limited to:
      1. SS&E - LMS Integration steps completed within the LMS including SS&E Plugins installed (if applicable).
      2. Course gradebooks formatted appropriately.
        • For each course Current/Total grade is formatted as a percentage in order for SS&E to process them.
        • Grades are published and/or available externally for the integration.
      3. See implementation guide for all LMS Integration requirements.
