The Canadian Credit Union Association (CCUA) provides key services to credit unions in Canada. One of the key services that CCUA provides is training and development to employees of credit unions. Historically, staff of credit unions enrolled in online learning curriculums served by CCUA’s Learning Management System (LMS). (An LMS is a platform that allows individuals to take part in online curriculums, access learning material and complete exercises and examinations.) But as the number credit unions in Canada grew, and as technology became more accessible, some credit unions implemented their own in-house LMS to administer training programs complementary to those found in the CCUA LMS solution.
CCUA recognized a new problem: credit unions in Canada that have their own LMS did not interoperate with the CCUA’s LMS. This meant these credit unions could not easily leverage the learning material and courses found in the CCUA’s LMS.
