Can I integrate SAM learning materials with my moodle?
SAM learning: http://www.samlearning.com
My moodle: http://www.sbecvle.co.uk
Now if they would give you the content, you could load it into lesson as essays or with Joseph Rezeau's(sp?) new (in 1.6) regular expression engine, maybe even automatically graded.
In our school we have provided a link to Samlearning from within our moodle, but have added in the automatically filling in the centreid
What I really want to do is pass the username, and possibly even password (these are fixed) is there anywhere in moodle to upload and store user defined fields and then pass them as a parameter
I was speaking at a Moodle-esque day at Varndean recently and was asked the same sort of thing...
As far as passing parameters goes, it would be possible to change certain fields in someone's profile (id number, etc., some of the "less used" ones) and then pass these to any web site by using the "Parameters" option when creating a resource...
This is where the benefit of Shibboleth / Single Sign On really becomes apparent...
