Integrating iMIS With an LMS
Need to integrate an LMS with your iMIS system? BroadPoint's MemberPrime division and Web Courseworks helped the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) integrate their iMIS and LMS systems--with great success. Here's the story:
The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) is the leading association for the construction industry. AGC represents more than 26,000 firms, including over 6,500 of America’s leading general contractors, and over 9,000 specialty-contracting firms. More than 10,500 service providers and suppliers are also associated with AGC, all through a nationwide network of chapters.
AGC and their iMIS partner, BroadPoint’s MemberPrime division, defined AGC’s data reporting and administrative requirements for an LMS that fit AGC’s business. In addition to hosting conference content online, AGC offers a unique blended learning approach for many of its courses, often having learners’ complete assignments online before they meet face-to-face in a classroom. This learning approach posed unique data integration problems that Web Courseworks’ CourseStage LMS was equipped to handle.
BroadPoint's MemberPrime division and Web Courseworks worked together to provide a one-stop solution for AGC with CourseStage LMS. Due to the blended nature of AGC’s curriculum, Web Courseworks worked carefully to ensure that the data collected was fully integrated into AGC’s AMS. BroadPoint’s MemberPrime division implemented the iMIS Certifications module for AGC’s applicants. Then, the MemberPrime team created the commerce side for applicant payment and a workflow that moved the Enrollee to CourseStage LMS for learning upon purchase. Once credits are earned in CourseStage LMS, the integration writes that data back to iMIS, automatically updating the Enrollee’s profile with the credits earned for the certification.
AGC’s learners are now able to successfully receive credits toward their Associated General Contractors of America accreditation. Learners are easily able to compile and access their learning transcripts, including information about courses they completed prior to their courses being hosted on CourseStage LMS. Instructors use CourseStage LMS to assign readings to groups who then meet face-to-face to discuss those readings. Instructors also use CourseStage LMS to record attendance during the face-to-face class sessions. Web Courseworks worked closely with AGC to ensure that CourseStage LMS’s features were best optimized for AGC’s blended curriculum, and AGC reports that it is thrilled with the results.
