This webinar will focus on the the Ed-Fi operational data store (ODS), why it is useful to standardize your data using an ODS, and some useful highlights regarding what kind of data it holds and how it is structured. In addition, we will cover the ways in which the ODS facilitates interoperability of data from different source systems, as well as the enablers and barriers for different data sources. We will illustrate these using real-life examples from the experiences of our member districts in Indiana.
