    Which begs the question "why hasn't it been achieved?"

    If I was a major player in the MIS market, I would make it as easy as possible for VLEs to hook in to my MIS... it's only going to help sell my MIS in the long run.

    I'm sure that if CMIS turned around today and said that they had full integration with Moodle, Lancashire and Cumbria would start to have a good think about changing their choice of MIS.

    Without sounding as if I am defending Capita too much ....

    It hasn't been achieved because:

    a) the rules about how Learning Platforms work are still being argued about ... and no company wants to invest silly amounts of time and/or money only to be told they have done it wrong and will not get the rubber stamping that allows them to sell more software.

    b) Ensuring that MIS talk to VLEs mean that that the MIS have to jump through hoops to ensure *all* VLEs work. It is easier to say "this is the standard format of the information to be transferred and then we will build something to generate it" than to ask VLEs how to plug into them ... it also puts the emphasis on the VLE producers to do their share of the work.

    c) Pressure ... There is a certain amount of pressure to ensure that other ways of getting MIS to be more integrated are done. Production of Web parts for Sharepoint based sites is going strong in CMIS and SIMS dev teams ... and this is seperate to the main chunk of integration ...

    All in all I think that the new stuff coming from Capita and Serco for BETT will be very interesting ... and will mean a fairly large chunk of work for techies to ensure it is setup and used properly.
