Dear Forum Members, 

I hope all of you are safe and well.

Please let me know if there is any possibility of integrated Koha with Moodle LMS software for providing students one platform where they can access their library and academic content. 

Regards, 

Deepak Sharma

Most academic institutions will have both a library system and a learning management system. It would be great if these systems could talk to each other.

Imagine if you, a student, could place holds on items on your course reading without leaving the learning management system. If you write a review of a piece of literature in the learning management system, that could be added as a review on the bibliographic record in the library system. Koha and Moodle are arguably the two leading open source solutions for library management and learning management systems, so linking them together makes sense.

Taking just the holds example, the potential development or patch would be to make a Koha app (or apps) at the FOLIO app level. This would act as a translator app, working with the Koha Restful API on one side, and the OKAPI API on the other. To support holds, it would also need to talk to the holds API(s) in Koha.

Those API would potentially be:

/users/

To look up the user details.

/circulation/holds/

To look up the usage details for the item to be placed on hold.

The workflow for placing a hold is, get the information about the user, get the information about the object, check a hold can be placed, place a hold.

GET /users/search/{email} would return a user matching the email

GET /users/{user_id} would return a user matching the id

POST /circulation/holds/place/{user_id}/{biblio_id} would return a hold id on success would return an error message on failure

The Koha holds app would accept messages from the OKAPI layer, parse them, call the appropriate Koha API and format the response to be handed back to the OKAPI layer.

Koha -> | FOLIO Koha Hold App -> Okapi -> Moodle App | -> Moodle

And back the other way. A Moodle app would also need to be created to execute this on the Moodle side.
