2:40 - 3:00 pm Moodle: Integrating external application with web services

When the University of the West Indies Open Campus implemented Moodle 2.0 in September 2011, there was a requirement for Moodle to be tightly integrated with the student mangement system. This would rquire functionality to allow for single sign on with the Open Campus's custom Student Management system as well as the ability

to move profile information from one application to another. This presentation will show how this was achieved by building custom authentication, enrolment and local plugins and web services to allow Moodle to consume data from the Student Management System.
