Recently on one of the Blackboard mailing lists someone asked about transferring grades from Blackboard to their student information system. Now this is something that off and on people keep asking about, there are integrations in America but in the UK none of the big student information systems have been integrated.
Thats not to say people haven’t tried a number of Uni’s have attempted it with varying success – but if anyone has totally solved it I haven’t come across them sharing their methods. I believe Blackboard corp are even looking at making some integrations themselves but this might take some time.
Now in my last job at City of Bristol College about 6 years ago we did a lot of work moving grades around and I had something that worked well as a “Semi” automatic method.
So I thought I would show people how because with a few tweaks it could work for you.
If you dont use Blackboard the rest is probably a bit boring for you….
