LAMS Integrations
LAMS works well as a stand-alone e-learning system. It can also be integrated with other educational software such as a Learning Management System (LMS) / Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). A LAMS integration is module built for a specific LMS/ VLE that it handles the communication between the two systems. This module acts as a bridge between them making them behave as one unified system.
