I like to integrate the fsu loncapa course sign up script into 
loncapa. Currently, when an instructor wants a new course he/she has 
to go to a specific link, sign in using the fsu username/password. 
The script then checks if the user is an instructor. Now that CAS is 
working, I like to integrate this and at some point have it linked from BB.

This what I thought of doing.
1. A user is login to BB.
2. User clicks on link to request for a loncapa course - the link 
points to the a script on the lib server.
3. The user is automatically authenticated by CAS.
4. The script then checks for course(s) assigned to the instructor of record.

The script will only run from the library server for security 
reasons. How do I go about integrating this into loncapa?
