    I'm interested, which schools? and they have full SIMS integration with UniServity?
    We seem to have real problems up North, the 'promised missing link' promised at the beginning of the year still hasn't appeared and as an Authority, we are losing schools that have only just signed up, so I would love to get in touch with schools that have read/write facility just to reassure schools that are waiting there is light at the end of the tunnel.
    Cheers Bee

    I'm interested too, Our LEA bought uniservity and promised SIMS integration but they couldn't deliver it so we integrated moodle with SIMS instead.

    That sounds more interesting. Is it in the wiki?

    (sorry going of topic.)

    Well, we have bought and paid for 3 years of UniServity... any chance you can;
    UniServity => <= Moodle => <=SIMs??? dream on I think

    We have Uniservity VLE.
    I have been sent a 3-4 page instruction sheet and downloaded a software installer from their site which is supposed to enable the SIMS>Uniservity integration.

    I have, admittedly, not yet doen anything about it, as we want to keep the username format we have on the AD domain, not use the system they have available on the import fields.

    To get access to this information I sent an email to MIS @ UNISERVITY . COM with details of the school, and the support password. It may have helped that our LA is currently rolling it out to all 2ary schools (and all 1ary schools next term).



    Just a reminder, there are currently no VLEs that are able to write back to SIMS (AFAIK).

    Hi
    Thanks for that, I'll follow that up
    I was refering to the 'promise' of the partnership of UniServity with Capita and their VLE + Webparts for read and write access into SIMS.
    I'm from Wirral too, which school are you at?

    The only thing ours does at present is fetch user information from SIMS to create VLE accounts. Mcshammer_dj, what does version 3 do?

    version 3 is the stable version that currently will transfer class lists to the VLE platform for newly added children and leavers.
    There are plans for the utility to send data back to sims and receive data from SIMS to allow for parental reporting on the attendance and attainment. This does not need to be in place until 2010.

    It is worth noting that the utility has never really been designed to allow for usernames to be created exactly as the schools might like. The utility is designed to link children known to the VLE and children known to the MIS.

    I wouldn't bother. the Uniservity doesn't even closely get to the functionality we have with moodle. Just ditch the Uniservity subscription and work on moodle.
    At the moment our sims/moodle integrates enrollment on courses, auto account creation, timetable integration. but so far we don;t write back to sims.
    There is some info here but it isn't comprehensive:
    SIMS and Moodle Integration

    I'm gonna be honest with you... The secondary school i'm working in.... We have University just because it was thrown at us by the LA, and well most of the staff including myself can't wait to get out of it. We are currently running a test moodle site and looks like we are heading towards that, although all depends on the powers that be.
