Project Glue

California Community Colleges Technology Center: Project GlueProject Glue, or CCC Glue, is an integration architecture being developed by the California Community Colleges Technology Center to allow disparate Student Information Systems (SIS) to connect in a standardized way to systemwide technologies.

A key objective is to integrate all Chancellor’s Office-sponsored technology initiatives without putting additional burden on local college IT departments.

The architecture has three main parts:

College Adapter

The college adapter is a software component that is installed locally behind a college’s firewall to facilitate data running in and out of the college’s SIS. It enables disparate SIS’ to communicate in a standardized way through a cloud service, such as the Canvas course management system.

Standardized Data

An SIS configuration layer marshals SIS data, and moves it in and out of standard data models.

Data Exchange Using MDM

A data exchange model is being built around Master Data Management, which will give each college flexibility to choose their SIS, and whether/how often to synch it with the centralized applications.
