Software Description

The project will develop a single sign-on environment between the Bodington open source VLE, the Learning Activity Management System (LAMS) and the Assessment software developed by the JISC TOIA project. This will allow user to work with the three software systems without needing to sign in and is an important first step towards working with disparate software systems as an integrated solution. 

The project will also develop web services that allow the three software systems to provide and consume each other’s services. In this way LAMS authors will be able to embed Assessments within their activity sequences for instance. 

Aims and Objectives

The main goal of the project is built appropriate integration between the LAMS, TOIA and Bodington software systems. The WebAuth single sign-on system will be used to provide Authentication and Authorisation services and web services will be developed using the WSDL interoperability specification. 

Alongside the technical work Oxford’s medical faculty will coordinate the development of resources for learning statistics. LAMS sequences and TOIA assessments will be embedded within the Bodington VLE. The authors of these resources will be able to inform the technical strand of the project while developing the material.
