A few companies are starting to grasp the potential of real interoperability among EdTech solutions. Betting on the Experience API or xAPI standard, Moodle analytics company Lambda Solutions is leveraging openness in the search for new partners. A press release announces the alliance between Lambda’s Zoola Analytics, the company’s reporting and dashboard initially for Moodle systems, and SHIFT, a proprietary LMS by Aura Interactiva. SHIFT offers a cloud-based platform with limited but easy-to-use features and a template library. While it does not explicitly offer support for third-party services –let alone plugins– it can connect to content sources using xAPI. It also supports SCORM packages. This makes it possible for SHIFT users to access an analytics dashboard for the first time.
Based in Costa Rica, Aura Interactiva is also a Totara LMS partner in the region and, starting now, the first Latin America-based Lambda Solutions partner. Aura serves customers all over the world with regional offices in North America, Panama, Peru, and Chile.
Lambda Solutions is an award-winning, open source company that develops data-based products for the Moodle LMS. Zoola Analytics is the company’s trademark service. Lambda also offers “full cycle” Moodle development, upgrade, customization, and support.
