Kartograafr v2.0

The TL - ArcGIS Canvas Integration project completed in June, 2016 provides a limited set of operations to link Canvas with the Esri mapping system for student submission of assignments completed in Esri, and managed in Canvas. One of the functions now performed on ArcGIS system moves student assignments into a separate, instructor controlled folder region where they can be graded by the instructor. As currently implemented, the system leaves the student without a copy of their work, and it still requires a good deal of manual intervention by the instructor for every assignment to be graded. A true copy operation could not be completed in the original implementation because of limitations of the REST API package used, and time constraints.

The objective of this enhancement is to implement a true recursive copy operation, which will provide the instructor with a full working copy of the student's assignment, leaving the student with their original copy intact. This update will also migrate away from the Esri/ago-tools API, which is no longer being supported by the vendor. The Esri/ArcREST API will be used instead.

LAADS - UDP Phase 1: Ingestion

The purpose of this project is to build a unified data source for SIS, LMS, and Caliper learning tools data. The Learning Analytics Infrastructure project is one of the key strategic initiatives the Teaching & Learning team will be investing in for FY18. The effort will entail working with the Unizin consortium to define and implement a cloud-based learning analytics platform. That platform will include the 3 main components:

1) Unizin Data Warehouse (UDW)
2) Learning Records Store (LRS)
3) Visualization Service

This platform will provide the capabilities needed to support learning analytics dashboards, academic performance alerts/monitoring, and surface actionable insights for faculty and program coordinators. This platform also provides the foundation for us to support technology-facilitated personalized and adaptive learning as those trend evolve.
