Voborník, P.Universal Testing Environment as an External Tool of Moodle. In: 10th International Scientific Conference on Distance Learning in Applied Informatics (DiVAI 2014), 5.-7. 5. 2014, Štúrovo, Slovakia, Prague: Wolters Kluwer, 2014, pp. 215-225. ISBN 978-80-7478-497-2.


The Universal Testing Environment is a sophisticated electronic cloud online test system, containing features that make it exceptional compared to other test systems. Moodle is a very widespread open-source LMS tool that has a many modules that can be used to implement a full-fledged eLearning teaching. This article will describe how these two systems were connected and tests in the Universal testing environment so they can be run directly from the Moodle course. This connection was realized through an External tool module, which is part of Moodle. Thanks to the Bridge design pattern then it was not necessary intervention into the code of any of both systems. This “bridge” translate LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) protocol, which communicates Moodle, to the URL in format required by application interface (API) of Universal testing environment. This functionality is currently used at the University of Hradec Králové and the high school Podorlické vzdělávací centrum in Dobruška.
