Integration with Learning Management Systems

• Apr 9, 2020 - 07:59

Hi!
I was wondering whether there is any work being done towards integration with any LMS (Google Classroom, Teams, SeeSaw)...
In the same line: is an browser-based editor something you have considered to any degree?
Thanks!
Best,
Uri

Browser-based editor is a nice dream, it gets thought of from time to time but it's a pretty enormous undertaking to convert a program designed to run on a single computer into that sort of architecture. So nothing I'd expect to see happen any time soon.

As for integration with LMS, that's an interesting question. What would that integration look like to you? The most obvious thing I can think of is, ability to place a score display/playback widget within a page of your LMS, and that's already possible using the embed code from musescore.com. Simply upload your score there, hit the Share button, and grab the embed code. I use that all the time.

In these times of online education, I have been trying to find a solution to make MS really interactive with my music students, but haven't really managed. I really don't see how true LMS integration is possible without online (browser based) editable scores. In flat and noteflight, one can create a template, and then send copies of it to students, who work on the score and submit back the exercise. In order to do that with MS, all my students would have to download MS. Even if my school allowed it — they strongly advised us teachers to force parents to install tons of new software and make profiles on other portals than the many ones they already use —, just the thought of having to double as IT-guy for all parents having trouble installing, setting the audio preferences right, etc. scares me...

Right, again, we all totally get that an online editor would be a wonderful, thing that would be nice to have someday in the future. But as I said, that's an enormous undertaking that would not be something anyone could expect to see soon. My question is, other than that, what would better integration with an LMS look like?
