SIS & LMS Integration with Apereo Portlets

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Tuesday 4th June, 2013

2:00pm to 2:45pm (PST)

The last several quarters have brought us game-changing new innovations for bringing content from your SIS and LMS into uPortal. Many of these focus on the Courses portlet, but the Calendar, Map, and Notification portlets also play an important role.

We will look at the cool new advances that are available now, and some that are under development. We will hear about or directly from several schools working with these technologies and the methods they've found to be effective in this area.
