Integrating the LMS in Service Oriented eLearning Systems
Learning management systems are routinely used for presenting, solving and grading exercises with large classes. However, teachers are constrained to use questions with pre-defined answers, such as multiple-choice, to be able to correct automatically the exercises of their students. Complex exercises types cannot be evaluated automatically by the LMS alone and require the coordination of a set of heterogeneous systems. For instance, programming exercises require a specialized exercise resolution environment and automatic evaluation features, each provided by a different type of system. The objective of this research work is to find an approach for the coordination of a network of eLearning systems supporting the resolution of exercises. The proposed approach is based on a pivot component that is embedded in the LMS and has two main roles: 1) to provide an exercise resolution environment and 2) to coordinate the communication between the LMS and the other systems exposing their function...
