There are a few interesting links to start from.

The basic idea is to have the Dokeos extended profile act as an OpenSocial container. This involves working on the development of an API (we should look for previous examples here) that matches the requirements given by Google's OpenSocial. Once this API is there, it should be possible to add applications simply by adding links to these apps from one's profile (this could easily be done the same way the RSS feed feature is currently enabled).
A few important steps to take are:

  • review OpenSocial API's requirements * try to find another case of implementing a PHP container for OpenSocial apps * analyse if the OpenSocial PHP client is useful in this case (maybe develop an OpenSocial app' in the process) * analyse Elgg and its link to Claroline (might be useful but the Claroline side of this plugin looks is apparently very uglily copied from another claro plugin)

Try to make a good link to Elgg, somehow. We want more social features, so linking with a social networking tool would be good.

OpenSocial seems to have died (lack of adoption). Closing task.
