    More info. Currently the LITMOS system has some issues that will prevent the students from achieving 100 percent completion, so their completion status as shown in LITMOS will be less than 100 percent. Seattle-NAV usually goes by a number of >85% for class completion. We should talk about this more for the requirements on how to automatically update the participant result on the website via LITMOS data.

    Another thing to integrate -- automate creation of logins and deactivation of logins between the systems. If someone signs up for an activity, create their login within LITMOS on the start date of the activity, for example. Then when the "course" is finished (or possibly the activity), inactivate the user to free up LITMOS licenses for other users. If the person had not completed Activity #1, but signs up for another eLearning Activity #2, you'd need to keep their LITMOS login active, otherwise, LITMOS resets their course completion status and puts them back to ground zero.

    Navigation has been using the activity roster on Mountaineers.Org is the primary spot for recordkeeping, student status, and close-out. Team Rosters in LITMOS have only been for putting students into a certain "Team" which runs for a certain length of time (2 to 4 weeks), and tracking their progress within their assigned LITMOS eLearning Coursework. If a student starts the eLearning, and doesn't get much above 20%, we plan to mark them as a No-Show on the Activity Roster. If they get further but don't finish, we plan to mark them "Turned Around", because that seems to be the closest status to "Incomplete" (Or, add an Incomplete status to Participant Result options). If they finish, we'll mark them complete. There will be people who don't finish on one activity, but change their registration to another activity. Within LITMOS, they will appear on more than one "Team" or "Course", depending how the "Activity to LITMOS" relationship is done. But that helps you understand some of how we plan to map LITMOS completions to Mountaineers Activity completions before integration is available.

    Currently any integration between the systems is a manual process. For example, as students complete the class in the online system an admin will have to update these students with result status on the website (250+ students for 2019 NAV) since the website is the system of record for courses. LITMOS does have a cvs feed available, and one possible path would be to have the ability to import this or part of the data at the activity level with initiation by the admin. Open for other ideas also. Not sure how many votes this will get as this really only impacts those classes that are taking advantage of the online environment.
