Project 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:
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.
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.
