2021-11-26, 16:50–17:10 (Europe/Athens), Room1

What are the best approaches for opening up Moodle and integrating it with other platforms of your Educational insitution or your Workplace? How can Moodle help moving from "walled gardens" to open playgrounds for online learning and a seamless Learning Experience across interconnected platforms? How can API-driven integrations help for scalability and robustness of your Moodle platform?

We will present our experience as Eummena, in making Moodle the central component of Learning Experience Platforms for Universities, training organisations and workplaces, based on API-driven techniques as well as well-supported open standards and protocols.
