December 18, 2018 – Blaine, Minn. – Infinite Campus, the most trusted name in student information, is excited to announce that the BrightBytes® DataSense platform, a data integration and management solution, is now a Digital Learning Partner. A connection through DataSense integrates Infinite Campus student information system (SIS) with DataSense-supported systems.
DataSense enables supported systems to exchange real-time data with the Infinite Campus SIS, which provides teachers and students a valuable tool: assignment score passback. When teachers using a DataSense-supported learning management system (LMS) update their scores, those will be reflected in their Campus Grade Book.
At this time, the connection through DataSense will support the following systems: Blackboard Learn and Blackboard Classroom, and the Clarity Analytics Platform by BrightBytes.
Both Infinite Campus and DataSense are IMS Global Certified and meet their OneRoster standard for securely sharing class rosters, assignment data and scores between systems.
“We’re excited to be working with DataSense and offer this powerful integration to customers,” said Charlie Kratsch, Infinite Campus CEO and Founder. “Campus was the first SIS to be OneRoster v1.1 Grading Services API certified, it’s important that we partner with other IMS Global certified vendors.”
“This partnership helps connect teachers with tools they frequently use, which will save them time and reduce errors,” said Dr. Barry Brahier, Chief Product Officer for Teaching and Learning at Infinite Campus. “By integrating with DataSense, we are ensuring that teachers spend more time teaching, which furthers our mission of Transforming K12 Education®.”
With better, faster access to data, educators will have more insight into how to improve learning and replicate best practices. “We want to ensure educators have the opportunity to achieve data interoperability, so they can access and leverage high-quality data to inform learning,” said Traci Burgess, CEO at BrightBytes. “By partnering with Infinite Campus, we are able to expand our DataSense product offering, reach more educators, and have more impact on students.”
Infinite Campus and DataSense will be piloting the integration with select DataSense-supported districts during the spring of 2019 with release to all customer districts planned for 2019-20 school year. DataSense joins 10 other Infinite Campus Digital Learning Partners: eDoctrina, Illuminate Education, itslearning, Kiddom, Kimono, Microsoft, Naiku, Otus, Schoology and Turnitin.
