LTI Configuration

This page outlines how to setup WCLN LTI on your Moodle site.

Note: This configuration MUST be done prior to restoring WCLN courses. LTI courses will not work if they are restored before performing this set up. If for some reason you have already restored an LTI course, follow the instructions on this page and then re-restore the course using the backup file.

1. Install the LTI Source plugin.

2. Login to your Moodle site as an administrator.  You will be installing two External Tools (WCLN LTI Book and WCLN LTI Page).   We'll do the Book first.

3. Navigate to Site Administration PluginsActivity modules > External toolManage tools

4. Enter the "Tool URL" as https://wcln.ca/local/lti/configuration/book.xml and click Add.

5. Enter your consumer key and shared secret, as provided in your district's WCLN Welcome Letter (emailed from Francine to district's WCLN admin contact).

6. The tool should be added below. Click the settings button to configure more tool settings.

7. Set Tool configuration usage to Show in activity chooser and as a preconfigured tool.

    Set Default launch container to Embed.

8. Under the heading Privacy, the default for Accept grades from the tool is Never (which keeps your gradebook nice)..

    Click Save changes.

Now that you've installed the Book plugin, let's do the Page plugin:

9. Repeat steps 4 - 8 using the "Tool URL" as https://wcln.ca/local/lti/configuration/page.xml

10. Done! Your courses with WCLN LTI Books and Pages should now be working.
