Zoom (LTI Tool Provider Setup)
The Zoom video conferencing application offers an LTI Tool in its App Marketplace called "LTI Pro" (link).
You will need to click "Sign in to install" and sign in with your (administrator) Zoom account, then authorize and add this application.
Once LTI Pro has been added to your Zoom account, you will receive the LTI Tool Provider credentials:
In another browser tab, log in to OpenLearning and navigate to your Institution. Under Institution Settings > Integrations click "+ Add LTI tool provider".
Fill in the details from the "LTI Pro" details provided earlier, you will need to copy across:
- LTI URL (to "Launch URL")
- LTI Key (to "Consumer Key")
- LTI Secret (to "Shared Secret")
In order for Zoom to verify administrator accounts, a valid email address must be passed from OpenLearning to the Zoom application. As a final setup step, scroll to the bottom of the LTI Provider setup and select the option "Personal Email Address" under Email Settings.
This option will prompt each user on their first launch to confirm an email address that will be sent to Zoom to complete the sign-on process.
Click "Save" to finish the setup process, and Zoom will now appear as a widget that can be dragged onto any course page (under the "LTI Tools" menu).
As an administrator this allows you to schedule a new meeting from within OpenLearning:
As a learner, you can then join the meeting which has been scheduled, from the same OpenLearning page:
Clicking "Join" will launch the Zoom video conferencing application and instruct it to connect to the required meeting.
