Now we're interested in implementing this same functionality in moodle, automatically creating new posts in forums in which students can discuss the lecture. I'm completely new in XML-RPC programming for moodle, so I'd like to ask, would someone be willing to collaborate/guide me in implementing the XML-RPC functionality? We think it'd be a great thing to share with the moodle community.
Thank you very much,
I posted some code close to what you might want here: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=125867. If you are running Moodle 1.9.9x with source since January of this year, be aware that updates to Moodle will require updates to a few of the mdl_mnet_host* and mdl_mnet_service* tables to get xml-rpc calls working.
