Technical Guide for Integration

Moodle block – our standard Moodle code block which can be installed to your Moodle system, allowing single sign-on and account creation on the ForSkills site.

Self-registration page – allows learners or tutors to create accounts via a dedicated URL and register button on the login page.

Bulk import – via csv file allows you to create new users, new groups, move users between groups, assign courses to learners and archive learners. A thousand records per upload can be imported directly through our site or via scheduled exports from your MIS to a folder for processing on our site.

Syndicated login – a link created by you that passes information between your MIS system and our site, allowing creation of learner accounts, assigning of products, and group creation and allocation using a student reference.

API (application programming interface) – allows learners to be set up and requests for learner data to be made. Suitable for on-demand requests rather than bulk requests. See bulk import for bulk requests.

Skillslink data – allows learners who exist in your MIS database, but don’t exist in ForSkills, to log in. The username is verified against your MIS database upon logging in and then the account is created. This can also synchronise group/course information against your MIS on every login. LDAP authentication is another feature of the Skillslink data module. This means that learners can log in with the same username and password that they use for your organisation’s computers.

Embeddable assessments – can be inserted into any platform such as an LMS. This only applies to the assessments and cannot be used in conjunction with the resources.
