Using XCRI-CAP #coursedata
Cloud created by:

The JISC #coursedata call aims to get institutions to review their internal course data processes and will provide funding for them to re-engineer and streamline data flows. To provide an outward sign of the improved inner efficiency, #coursedata projects will be required to produce an XCRI-CAP feed. This shouldn't be onerous if good data is available, and so should act as an proxy for the institutional readiness to do other things with their coursedata, in preparation for initiatives like KIS and HEAR.
To help institutions produce valid feeds, and think about their data, the ITT will commission testing tools.
A validator... to validate feeds... and provide meaningful feedback to help correct invalid feeds...
and an aggregator to pull registered feeds together, so simple comparison can be run against feeds, for sense checking.
