This summer, Echo got a nice upgrade that allows you to sync with your student information system data using the OneRoster data exchange standard. The OneRoster standard is widely use by learning tools to exchange information. This new functionality allows user accounts (including parents), courses and enrollments to be synced with your student information system. While many schools might prefer to manually manage their Echo domain, for larger districts or schools with high student transiency, having an automated system can be very beneficial. And, because the OneRoster sync uses your existing SIS and Echo licenses, this feature is available at no extra cost.
To learn more about the OneRoster SIS Sync, check out the FAQ article we’ve added to the Help Desk. If you’d like to take advantage of the OneRoster Sync, submit a support request to the Help Desk to get the process started.
