Drillster lends itself very well for integration into third party learning management systems (LMS). This way Drillster's adaptive memorization and testing capabilities can greatly enhance an integrated learning environment.
Practice drills and do tests as regular learning activities inside the LMS
Keep track of the proficiency levels and progress of your students
Provide a seamless integration between Drillster and the host platform
The following things are required in order to make the integration work with an LMS as described in this document:
Drillster Education or Business license or Premium account – The connection between the LMS and Drillster makes use of Drillster's group functionality, which requires a paid account. Also, the integration will automatically add user accounts to groups in case no corresponding Drillster account exists for the LMS user. For premium accounts the maximum group size is limited. For license accounts no limits on group sizes exist.
A main account with appropriate permissions – There will be at least one main account in Drillster one whose behalf the API calls will be made. This account should have the appropriate permissions to manage groups and to create user accounts. Also, the organization linked to the account must be configured such that user can be added to groups with prior permission from those users. Please contact Drillster Support if you are not sure whether your account is set up correctly.
Internet access ‐ This one sounds like a no-brainer, but it is very important. The LMS instance should have outbound access to www.drillster.com (ports 80 and 443). This will allow it to make the appriopriate API calls. The LMS users who will be using Drillster learning activities must have access to www.drillster.com in order to access those learning activities. For drills containing audio or video, additional hosts are accessed. In most educational or business environments this is no problem. In general, any modern browser with internet access (direct or proxied) will do just fine.
