Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District

Challenge
Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District located in El Cajon, CA facilitates and supports educational programs and services at Grossmont and Cuyamaca Colleges to meet the needs of more than 29,000 students across both campuses. With two separate college locations, the District looked to Blackboard for assistance integrating into a single site.

Blackboard Consulting was able to support the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District in accomplishing several objectives. While they were looking to integrate their offerings into a single site, they wanted to maintain individual course catalogs with the unique brand of each school. They also wanted a cross listing of courses to enable students to select courses at either campus.

Solution
Blackboard Consulting developed and implemented a solution that allowed for data integration of both colleges while maintaining the unique brand of each campus. Working closely with each campus, Blackboard was able to fully automate a custom data integration to accommodate both locations.

Results
The data integration project was successfully completed with a well-documented business process providing a blue print for future growth. This project reduced staff hours required for data load administration and error checking. In addition, course section sites were created for all course offerings at both campus locations, increasing platform adoption and overall user satisfaction.
