Campus Safety Course Management: How could learning management systems (LMS) and student information systems (SIS) be improved?

Campus safety course management is very important, a majority of instructors were asked what is your Learning Management System (LMS) or Student Information System (SIS)?

Very few could answer this question.


Instructors see little value in traditional LMSs and SISs.

Things are so bad, that millions of instructors are willing to use Class Dojo, Remind and Edmodo to manage their course communication.  They would rather input information into 2 or 3 systems, the SIS, the LMS and Edmodo, than use a solution that works poorly, and that does not meet the daily needs of the student’s learning.

Student’s usually see little value in an LMS, they see it only as the means by which they get their grades, what a missed opportunity to engage the student.

The answer is that teachers and professors see the LMS or SIS as an impediment and not a tool to getting things done.

Why do traditional LMSs and SISs fall dreadfully short? and Campus Safety Course Management doesn’t?

The typical Student Information System (SIS) or Learning Management System (LMS) was designed over 15-20 years ago, the functionality is just OK, but the design is completely wrong for a system in today’s world.

Why? Legacy LMSs and SISs were built with a very traditional, now mostly abandoned design philosophy called: top-down design. Top-down legacy systems were designed for the Enterprises top decision-makers, so that they can have a great report to make great decisions. This might work in corporate America, where you can force data input clerks to input data in a certain way.

It should be no surprise, that instructors are not data input clerks, they want to teach. So, when a tool does not help them, they do what anyone with a little choice would do, they use it as little as possible. So, SIS and LMS usage is limited, the utility of the software is limited and the data quality is not what it should be.

What should an LMS/SIS or course management platform provide?

User interfaces need to be designed with the teacher and the student in mind, not the report.

If the user’s use it, they will provide a wealth of data and amazing reports.

Instructors want tasks like creating an assignment to be simple, quick and easy

Students need information quickly, not 10 clicks away.

Users demand modern social-media-like features. Features like:

  • Message boards
  • Chat
  • Instructor messaging
  • Calendar sharing
  • File sharing
  • Picture sharing
  • Roster sharing

Apps that provide access need to be clean, simple and quick.

Access to grades, attendance, and assignments need to be simple and easy.

Why doesn’t my school have a modern learning management or course management system?

  • Top players dominate the market with legacy solutions.
  • Innovation is stifled by the top market players who main objective is to milk their “cash cow” legacy systems.
  • Educators often time gravitate to the “proven, traditional, safe” systems that have provided the mediocre results of the past.
  • School administrators often find themselves at odds with the teacher/course tools like Edmodo, Remind and Class Dojo, because they do not provide the enterprise/school-wide solution set that is necessary, but they delight the teachers.

Top reasons why Campus Safety course management system the best in the industry.

  • Best modern features and functions that are Instructor and student centric.
  • Best modern school and administrator tools that allow the best reports and insight.
  • Best speed and ease of use.

Integration from your campus SIS

Integration is the best news yet!

So, you love your SIS or LMS. That’s fine. But you like many of the features of IDentifyED!
IDentifyED’s modular design allows you to pick and choose by the user role the systems that you want to implement for your environment. No need to try and put 15-20 point solutions on top your SIS and LMS.

IDentifyEd has the ability to integrate with your SIS so that we can pull student/user and login roster information as well as in many cases course, teacher and group information. See the list below. We can also with the Swift Data tool completely integrate with the list of premise access controllers, list below. With the Swift Data tool, we provide not only data synchronization but also workflow and business rule-based intelligence to configure access and to update Kornukopia’s IDentifyed, your SIS and your PACs!
