LTU’s Moodle migration to AWS helped boost its availability above 99% with a 23% improvement in response times. With the LMS becoming stable and reliable, LTU could then redesign how the platform served as its core digital content repository.
The Catalyst Team worked with LTU staff to integrate digital resource management to their online course content, with a tailored Drupal content management system (CMS) woven into the Moodle and Canvas architecture. The solution leveraged AWS’ Transcode and Elastic search services. Content upload forms incorporated mandatory metadata tagging, such as copyright.
Over the following two years the resultant solution, called LTU’s Digital Object Repository with Integrated Services (DORIS), served over 15 million video items to students. From a workflow perspective, teachers can now create video content on their smartphones, upload to DORIS and share directly to their students.
A foundational element of integration architectures relates to information security. When you bring together previously disconnected solutions, crossing on premise and cloud services boundaries, it’s easy to overlook security in your pursuit of interoperability.
Catalyst’s approach to all aspects of architecture and engineering solutions incorporates security at every stage. By coordinating and making consistent security integrations across your enterprise LMS solution, with single sign-on (SSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA) and consistent authorisations, you can maintain adherence to your security policy. This provides peace of mind that what you protect in your core architecture remains protected in all integrated capabilities.
Ongoing maintenance across the enterprise should encompass security, as patching of core and integrated solution elements is vital. Building security into the Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline, ensures that every release, be it a patch or a major solution enhancement, remains secure.
Goodbye silos, hello interoperability
Integration is one of the most important aspects of designing an LMS solution, as without it you can’t realise the full potential of your technology investment, or the full potential of your business capability. Done well, integration will streamline processes, improve productivity, vastly improve the student experience, and ultimately provide you with a competitive advantage.
