Schools with Google Workspace for Education Plus can now integrate their Student Information System (SIS) and Google Classroom through Instructure’s Elevate Data Sync
SALT LAKE CITY, September 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Structure, the maker of Elevate Data Sync, has reached an agreement with its partner, Google, that closes the integration gap for Google Classroom users with a robust, comprehensive solution. With the integration, educational institutions can now synchronize data and course listings between their student information systems (SIS or MIS) and Google Classroom. This means teachers no longer need to set up their courses manually or require students to use a membership code. Teachers can now simply click “accept” when their course is automatically created.
Elevate data synchronization, Instructure’s standards-based interoperability solution that enables secure sharing of student, staff and learning data, will create classes with all the right students before the first day of school and keep them informed if a student changes class. This automated and adaptable integration can hopefully save a lot of time for teachers, students, and the professionals who support them.
“Through our partnership with Elevate Data Sync by Instructure, we’ve added the ability to sync rosters from your Student Information System (SIS) with Classroom, so classes can be automatically created and updated, started in 15 countries,” said Alisa Sommer, head of edtech partnerships at Google. “Education data integration is a complex problem, so we wanted an enterprise-class partner with deep expertise and a cloud-based platform that supports multiple standards and integration methods.”
“This partnership with Google Classroom is an ideal example of how Instructure’s learning platform enables partners and institutions to innovate and integrate faster,” said Kevin Turco, vice president of product management at Instructure. “We are proud to be able to work with Google to find a solution that makes teachers’ jobs easier while maintaining the highest level of privacy and security for student data.”
Institutions with Google Workspace for Education Plus who want to test the integration can Register for beta and can find integration help on Instructure’s Community page. Schools can request more information about Google Workspace for Education Plus if they don’t have a subscription yet.
Once enrolled in the beta, administrators will be able to integrate class rosters and schedules (rosters) directly with most major student information systems or can choose to connect using OneRoster or CSV files .
The solution is available and located in Australia, Belgium, Luxemburg, The Netherlands, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Swedenthe UK and United States.
