Many textbook and course material publishers provide a direct integration into Moodle to limit the number of required logins.
Working with External Tools/LTI in Moodle
Adding a New Activity
An LTI integration with a textbook publisher can be created on two levels:
- If you’re trying a new tool or only need to set up a stand-alone LTI item in a single course, you can create your own External Tool in your course as a Teacher. Your publisher will need to provide you with a customer secret and key.
- If an integration is going to be used by multiple courses, your publisher’s representative will need to contact email@example.com and we can work together to make that available.
While Online Learning can assist with integration setup, any account or connectivity issues with the integration MUST be directed to the publisher’s representative or tech support; Moodle Admins are unable to see the publisher side of these systems.
Some LTI integrations allow for Grade Sync from publisher systems into Moodle’s gradebook.
Online Learning is generally unable to assist with third party integrations. However, if students are experiencing issues, please have them contact your publisher’s support representatives first. If those reps need additional information, Online Learning can then be pulled in to assist.
