LTI: Signing into OpenLearning via Moodle

The LTI integration with Moodle enables students to sign into OpenLearning using their existing Moodle credentials. You'll need to set things up in both Moodle and OpenLearning to enable the integration.

You can set up the integration either within each individual OpenLearning course, or at the institution level.

A. Setting up LTI in the course: You'll need to do this each time you create a new class in OpenLearning

B. Setting up LTI in the institution: You will only need to do this once.

The following guide is for A. Setting up LTI in the course

For B. Setting up LTI in the institution, see similar steps in the Blackboard setup guide.

Setting up LTI in the course

Step 1

Go to your course (and make sure you are in the correct class) and go to Administer Students > Advanced

Step 2

Enter your OpenLearning password and click Request Credentials.

Step 3

Go to your Moodle course, go to Edit mode and click Add an activity or resource.

Step 4

Select External Tool, then click Add.

Step 5

Fill in all of the required details, including the Launch URL, Key and Secret generated in OpenLearning.

Step 6

Click Save and return to course.

Step 7

Turn off Edit mode.

Step 8

Click the Launch OpenLearning activity link you just created.

Step 9

Either create an account or log into your existing OpenLearning account (FYI: students will also see this same prompt when going to OpenLearning from Moodle the first time).

 Step 10

If you used the credentials from within the course (Administer Students > Advanced):

You will be automatically enrolled in the OpenLearning course and will be able to access (if it is live).

If you used the credentials from Institution Settings > Integrations:

Link this Moodle instance to a course and/or class in OpenLearning. (This will only happen once, the first time OpenLearning is launched from Moodle).
