Connecting Chamilo with other LMS via a shared repository

1,991 views

Published on

We present a new module that we developed specifically for the import and export of learning objects within Chamilo 2.0. Learning objects can be simple files, such as PDF documents, or more complex ones, such as quizzes, glossaries, forums, etc. Based on the IMS-CP and IMS-QTI standards, this module makes possible the exchange of learning objects between multiple instances of Chamilo, and other LMS as well, such as for instance Moodle (another LMS used at the University of Geneva). The choice of IMS over SCORM will be argued during this presentation, and will be shown to be related to the notion of players, which we believe is a serious impediment to the true exchange of learning objects. In particular, the possibility of reimporting learning objects so that they remain editable, without having to keep the initial version (in general tied to a specific LMS), was key to this development.
