Via Response's LMS and SIS Integrations
Much has been said about "integration." You probably haven’t been impressed. Support calls from EACH instructor trying to select the right class and web function is in the realm of rapidly diminishing return over flat files. At Via Response, we took a totally different approach. Being a cloud based service, we provide a powerful single integration with four web services. That’s it. As far as the instructors are concerned, the roster data is magically available handling all drops, adds and participation point exports.
We work with you to set instances and timing and all is controlled by IT so there are virtually no support calls around roster and grades. All major LMS’s are supported and because we have built out the web methods, it is easy for us to work with you on other systems.
