LAMS works well as a stand-alone e-learning system. It can also be integrated with other educational software such as a Learning Management System (LMS).
A LAMS integration is a module built for a specific LMS that it handles the communication between the two systems. This module acts as a bridge between them making them behave as one unified system.
The LAMS integrations provide single-sign-on (SSO) - once a user is logged-in to the LMS he/she won't need to login in LAMS again to access any LAMS resources. Additionally the LAMS integrations are designed to simplify the work for the system administrator: courses and users are created automatically in LAMS based on information from the LMS. To do this, LAMS relies on the LMS to provide student details to it in the background so that students do not have to log in separately to LAMS. Similar integration is also provided for teachers so they do not need to log in separately to LAMS, and also to make it easier for teachers to author LAMS sequences and add them into their LMS course page directly.
LAMS integration requires two steps:
- initial development of integration software to link the two systems, and
- configuration of this integration software with your local LAMS and LMS system.
