Setting standards for more effective courses information management
There are pros and cons for both. For instance, if your institution restructures, then there may be difficulties with the feed in the longer term.
Mainly institutions would use a mainstream ‘catch all’ feed with everything included under the ‘institution as provider’ heading. However, if there are specifically distinct course providers within your institution, such as ‘staff development’ or ‘business-related’ offerings then it might make more sense to split the feed and make separate provider elements for a separate faculty - then link via facilities inside XCRI-CAP.
The East Midlands projects mainly used the provider and its UKPRN code for their main XCRI-CAP feed.
