RosterHub: Open-Source Roster Management System for Interoperability of Educational Systems
Abstract: In recent years, various information systems such as LMS (Learning Management System) have been used in educational institutions, and the educational institutions are required to operate them efficiently and effectively. IMS OneRoster specification is an international standard for sharing learning information managed by SIS (Student Information System) with other application systems. In this study, we have developed a roster management system named RosterHub based on the OneRoster specification in order to utilize the learning information of SIS efficiently and to interoperate the educational systems effectively. As a result of practical evaluations of RosterHub at a Japanese university, it was confirmed that there were no major problems in using OneRoster and RosterHub, and that SIS and LMS could share learning information efficiently. To achieve the above purposes more widely, we have released RosterHub as open-source software.
