(PRWEB UK) 22 January 2014
Just in time for BETT 2014,Lightspeed Systems announces an enhancement to its award-winning LMS, My Big Campus: the solution now integrates with SIMS (School Information Management System) to simplify and streamline data management. Through this integration, SIMS data (including student/teacher names and class schedules) can be automatically pulled into the LMS to create user accounts and populate class groups—with no additional work for busy school ICT staff.
Lightspeed Systems worked closely with Capita to develop the integration. Capita SIMS is used by over 22,000 schools in England and Northern Ireland, managing all student and staff data. With dramatically increasing use of the My Big Campus LMS in the region, the integration was a clear choice to provide many schools with the streamlined management they need.
Because Lightspeed Systems focuses only on solutions for schools, the company is keen to the needs of those customers. “We are always looking for ways to simplify management for schools because we know staff is limited,” says Rob Chambers, VP Product Development for Lightspeed Systems. “This integration will provide schools across the UK with the ability to use an LMS to improve teaching and learning without adding additional work for busy staff.”
The My Big Campus LMS provides online classes, lessons, assessments, assignments, discussions, blogs and more—all within a solution that is mobile, safe, and uniquely designed for schools. And with the SIMS integration, it is easier than ever to get started and keep My Big Campus data up-to-date with school rosters.
