    Me again. All sorted! Huzzah. The only other wierdness I have spotted was that on first log on users seem to fail the LDAP auto logon but are still logged in. Bizzare and it seems to fix itself. If I find rhyme or reason I'll post.

    I am interested in visiting a school that has the integration between SIMS and Moodle? If anyone has this in place can you please contact me? I am assisting schools through their BSF process and particularly their MLE / VLE and this question has been asked a few times.

    Thanks, Ben

    Contracted support

    Hi Penfold,
    just wondered how close you were to the contracted support that you have mentioned and whether you had any ideas of costs involved yet?

    Regards
    Addid

    I've been reading around this subject and its worrying that its seems that Capita's stance is that you're not allowed direct access to the SIMS DB or there will be implications. How are people getting round this or is everyone just biting the bullet and creating the queries/views to allow direct access to the SIMS DB?

    I have created an alternative version that doesn't rely on direct DB access. We are nearing a release that supports SIF. A Demo of SIMS2MOODLE/SIF2MOODLE is avaliable at SchoolsICT's Moodle Demonstration

    SIMS2MOODLE uses command reporter to get information out of SIMS.net
    SIF2MOODLE uses our Moodle SIF Agent.

    SIF2MOODLE will superceed SIMS2MOODLE once released as it will handle parental engagement and reporting.

    Oh right.. SIMS2MOODLE isnt open source is it?

    Edit: So is the information that comes for SIMS Live or is it based on data pulled out at scheduled times?

    The information is pull from sims every hour and push into moodle. SIMS2MOODLE is open source. It comes with an installation and support package.

    Just wondering what definition of 'Open Source' you are using? Since these two statements appear to contradict each other. This one, Open source - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia which I'd think is pretty good, states 'the end-product (and source-material) available at no cost to the public'. This would normally imply a downloadable source location.

    Or am I missing something here?
