Does anyone here know how to retrieve information from moodle LMS
I am setting up a page on a Moodle LMS where a student can select a paper topic from a drop-down menu. What I need to do is get the student's information from the LMS so that I can populate the page based on which course they are in, their username, their e-mail etc.
I assume I will need to make a DB call at some point for things like e-mail and name but I was hoping that since the student will be logged in I can get the course name and their user name from the session.
I don't know a lot about this so can someone explain this a bit?

Moodle is written in PHP, and the source code is freely available. Also, the docs tell you how to create plugins and give a full list of the APIs you can use:
I would say that, after you have read *ALL* the relevant documentation about plugins and APIs, if you still have questions then you need to post in one of the Moodle forums:
