Providence required a web-based course management application for the Alberta education system

Challenge

Providence allowed students to build and book courses through their online platform, and one of the key requirements in the province of Alberta is submission of grades and test scores. This can be a very complex manual process, to submit these records student by student, or this can be an automated platform for submission through PASI. The goal of Essential Designs was to build the automated system, to submit these records instantly as students finished their classes.

Solution

A web-based application was developed for Providence to manage the courses and record submission to PASI. One of the more complex aspects of PASI integration is that it is constantly changing. Each quarter or school term, PASI would release a new updated API for the connection of 3rd party applications for submission of these course records. The Essential Designs platform not only conformed to initially submit this records, but updated with each API adjustment to make sure records were stored correctly
