External Systems Integration

Integration is a speciality. We have predominately used LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP/Perl) development to integrate sometimes very incompatible systems. Whatever the systems, talk to us to see whether we can help with any particularly difficult integrations. Many times, integration requires the migration of systems from older legacy systems to newer technologies. Integrations in which we can help with include:


  • User/Student Management Systems
  • Ecommerce and Accounting Solutions
  • Single Sign On Solutions
  • Schools Interoperabilty Framework (SIF)
  • Web Services (SOAP, XML-RPC, REST etc)
  • LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability)
  • HR systems.

ELearning Content Production, Discovery & Delivery

Our developers at HowToMoodle can help with solutions for the management of the production of content including solutions using other open source applications such as Joomla and WordPress and those involving content production work-flows such as in Sharepoint. Solutions for delivery into Moodle can include:


  • Moodle Repository Plugins
  • Tin Can
  • IMS Packaging
  • IMS Common Cartridge.



Proof of Concepts

We just love Proof of Concept (PoC) projects! Sometimes, in organisations, there is a lack of manpower, time or knowledge to attempt to determine the feasibility of ‘doing things differently’ or making improvements. The objective is to determine the solution to some technical problem such as how two systems might be integrated.

Reporting, Grading & Compliance Reporting

In many cases, your Moodle needs to track reports and grades. Where you need custom solutions to meet your needs, such as interoperability with external systems such as Compliance tracking systems, we can help.
We can develop bespoke reporting functionality and develop data exporting and importing functionality to integrate with other systems.

Course Commerce & Enrolment Management

We offer services to organisations that wish to integrate Ecommerce solutions into their Moodle or Totara LMS solution. We can also assist you if you wish to manage Moodle / Totara LMS course enrolments from data for Accounting or other solutions. We can design and develop the solutions required by your organisation.
