Keep Google Classroom classes and rosters synchronized with your Student Information System (SIS)
Clear away the teacher setup barriers and launch your school or district into a new level of Google Classroom adoption.
Synchronize Classroom classes and rosters
Little SIS for Classroom is a native desktop application that auto-creates Google Classroom classes and auto-syncs class rosters from student information exports, making it easier for schools to adopt and maintain Google Classroom at scale.
Progressive automation and scale-up
Little SIS can be run manually at first, then powered up to provide full automation as you get your feet on the ground. Designed to be adopted at ANY time in the school year and for a limited subset of teachers, classes, or schools, Little SIS allows you to launch a small pilot and then go big when you are good and ready.
Little SIS can detect and link to existing, teacher-created classes
Getting started mid-semester? SIS program not finalized until after the start of school? Your eager-beaver teachers built a bunch of their Classroom classes over the summer? Little SIS has this covered. An auto-detection algorithm will help you spot and resolve any unlinked classes that may have been created independently by teachers, linking them to the correct SIS sections and synchronizing their rosters. Magic!
How Little SIS works
- Little SIS App is installed on local server (typically a VM) on secure district network by an administrator.
- Automated CSV enrollment exports are scheduled for automated delivery to network folder via direct database query or SIS auto-send functionality.
- A Little SIS job is created, which includes user-configured data mappings that are used to transform SIS data into Google Classroom classes and rosters.
- New Classroom classes and roster updates are staged for manual review.
- Staged changes are approved by the administrator and executed by Little SIS via the Google Classroom API.
- Once you’re comfortable things are running correctly, steps 3 and 4 can be set to be run as fully automated process!
Ease yourself in with a process that requires manual inspection before changes are applied, then ramp up to full, touchless automation.
Seamlessly handles pre-existing classes
Little SIS uses an algorithm to detect pre-existing, teacher-created courses that match SIS data, prompting the administrator to link them for automated roster updates.
Make teachers happy
Automating the class setup and student rostering process in Classroom helps teachers get started and stay the path, even as their SIS enrollments change.
Get off to the races
Hit the ground with all engines running when you scale Classroom through workshops and district-wide initiatives.
Swim in a common direction
Students fare better when their teachers share similar workflow and communication methods across their classes. Let Classroom be the great unifier!
