For Learning Platform developers

This section provides technical information on how to make SCORM-compliant learning platforms communicate with It is aimed at developers of VLE environments.

By adding a new feature/plugin to your VLE, you can enable your users to automatically register resources available on yTeach in your VLE.

This additional feature/plugin allows the user to communicate directly with yTeach from within their VLE. Its role is to automatically register a SCORM package built from yTeach resources within the VLE.

In order to allow your application to communicate with yTeach – use our API

The API provides support for four different functions:
1. Function allowing logging-in to yTeach.
2. Function returning sections available on yTeach (currently there are three sections: My Playlists, My Class Assignments, My Favorites).
3. Function returning items from each section (Playlists, Class Assignments or Bookmarked resources).
4. Function creating SCORM packages and returning the URL to zip file.

We also encourage you to match a user’s VLE login with their yTeach login after first logging into yTeach from within your application. It can allow your application to work as a Single Sign-On system.

A detailed description of the API can be found in the API-help file
