What is data synchronisation?
Data synchronisation ensures that all data related to users, course content and course access, course completion and achievements is consistent across multiple platforms and devices.
Regardless of where or how a learner completes a module or test, their performance data is always up to date and readily accessible for trainers, educators, or the learners themselves. Similarly, when administrators or trainers update course content, quizzes, or other materials, these changes are immediately reflected across all platforms and devices.
Why is data synchronisation important?
Current and reliable data
Maintaining up-to-date accessible and consistent information across platforms, devices, and locations. For educators and trainers, this means uniform course progress, grades, and learning materials.
Efficient reporting and decision-making
Maintaining accurate and timely reporting. Educators and trainers make informed decisions based on synchronised data, identifying students needing support or aligning content with learning trends.
Reduced error and duplication
Effectively eliminating errors and repetitions that arise when manually updating data in multiple places. With data synchronisation, changes on one platform instantly reflect across others, resulting in accurate records and simplified material updates.
Compliance and accountability
Ensuring consistent, tamper-proof records, aiding educators and administrators in effortless compliance tracking, whether for attendance or training certifications.
