Abstract
The article considers the issues of integration of the "Electronic University of VSU" educational portal (basing of Moodle e-learning system) with the educational process management information system of the university. The purpose of this is to automate the services on linking e-learning courses with the disciplines of curricula of educational programs, subscription of students to e-learning courses and unsubscribing from them at the end of their studies, and also retrieving account authentication data for all users of the portal-teachers and students. A large number of students and training courses determine the high workload of the portal users, including administrators. To address this, several software modules interfacing the Moodle system were developed. Among them are the module that allows an e-course teacher to link their course to one or more specific disciplines of actual curricula of the university's educational programs. Another one is the module of automated student group registration and their subscription to the corresponding e-courses, which implements services to automate the creation of accounts for students and subscribe the authorized students to the e-courses of their educational programs. The module that provides the service of unsubscribing from the e-learning course for students who have completed the course is also described. Finally, the module that automates processing of users' requests related to their problems with access to the portal. This service is designed to ensure that all the manipulations on the registration of students and subscription of students to the courses are carried out by persons in charge of electronic courses without the need to address them to the staff of deaneries and portal administrators.
