Integration of Cloud-Based Learning Management System with Student Information System

Our client is software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology company that delivers educational software which makes people smarter. Its cloud-based Canvas learning management system (LMS) now connects more than 18 million teachers and learners at over 1,200 higher education and K-12 institutions throughout the world.

Business Challenge

Our client needed to enable integration of its Canvas Learning Management System with the Student Information System. The project consisted of three parts:

  • SIS Aeries Integration
  • SIS Aspire Integration (Integration with SIS Aspire which is used by Nebo School)
  • Flexible Learning LTI Application


Project Description

SoftServe and the client partnered to create 3 integrations of the Canvas system with the SIS system. SIS integrations were performed using a SIS API and custom integrations provided by the client to retrieve, process, and format the SIS data to adhere to Canvas. Within a short 3 month timeframe, the SoftServe team successfully executed all three projects.

Value Delivered

As a result of the three projects, Canvas now supports integrations with the SIS. These integrations allow instructors who use the application to pass the information to Canvas and use it on both account and sub-account levels. Teachers who use the application can transfer data and use the full set of Canvas features, receiving up to date information from the SIS system.

With the Flexible Learning LTI application our client offers their clients a versatile way to manage the Master Schedule of a course, as well as the opportunity to modify the study plan for a specific student.
