Integration of eKaay into ILIAS (e-Learning System)


It is assumed that a public Ilias portal is up and running. The website has to be public (Intranet is not enough) because the smartphones have to be able to reach the portal via URL/Internet.

    1. Order ekaay SDK at www.ekaay.com, email: info at ekaay dot com
    2. Unzip ekaay.zip to directory ekaay/
    3. Put directory ekaay/ into main directory ilias/
    4. Add database information in /ilias/ekaay/db_settings.php (same DB as the one for Ilias)
    5. Check whether ekaay works locally by calling ''../ilias/ekaay/test/'' in a browser
    6. Change file /ilias/ekaay/settings.php the following way:
      • settings.php
      • Adjust parameter ''&client_id=...&'' within definition of OS_CALL_SCRIPT
    7. (optional) Replace /ilias/ekaay/logo.png by your quadratic png logo

  2. Changes within Ilias: (version 4.3.2)
    1. Change file /ilias/Services/Init/templates/default/tpl.login.html the following way (edit URL's accordingly):
    2. Change file /ilias/Services/PEAR/lib/Auth/Container/MDB2.php the following way (edit URL's accordingly):
    3. Change file /ilias/Services/User/classes/class.ilPersonalSettingsGUI.php the following way (edit URL's accordingly):
