University of Sussex reinvents e-learning with Boomi
The University of Sussex hopes to redefine digital learning with its “Sussex 2025” strategy, which aims to break the boundaries of educational technology and learning.
As part of this plan, the university is creating a digital campus. Its faculty and 19,000 students in more than 100 countries will gain on-demand access to assessment materials and courses on multiple platforms.
The university is also moving from its legacy platforms. In their place will come a flexible IT infrastructure capable of taking advantage of new opportunities in the future.
In the past, the University of Sussex ran a hybrid IT environment that encompassed both legacy on-premises student record systems and a cloud-based virtual learning environment.
This created complications for internal data flows:
With Boomi’s help, the University of Sussex has achieved two important results:
With Boomi, we have revitalized the way we deliver teaching and learning.
Boomi helped us embrace change, create an integration strategy and think about where we want to go.
Boomi met the university’s data integration needs by:
Enabling its transition to a new cloud-based virtual learning environment from the previous custom open source platform.
Controlling and securing the flow of critical data between the university’s virtual learning environment and the e-assessment site.
Ensure efficient migration of IT infrastructure to the cloud with low-code capabilities and real-time API-based integration.
