A couple of members have chosen to use Canvas as their LMS (vs. Moodle).
At this point in time, moving WCLN courses to Canvas involves a fair bit of work. Here are some of the steps involved:
Adding LTI Books:
Explanation: Canvas supports LTI in the same way that Moodle does, except for the fact that it stores the custom parameter (ID) differently. In Moodle, there's a custom parameter feature built-in to the individual LTI configuration, while in Canvas, it has to be attached to the URL. Perhaps Canvas will write a script to adjust this minor difference while importing Moodle backups some day. In the mean time, here's what you do:
In the URL for an LTI item, you would put: https://wcln.ca/lti/index.php?id=1072.
Where the id (eg. 1072 as above) is entered to match the id as identified in the parameter area of Moodle.
Where do I find the ID?
It can be found in the backup files or if you restore the course in Moodle, can be found by:
- turn editing on
- beside "Book/LG...etc" click "Edit" > "Edit Settings"
- under "General" click "Show more...."
- under "Custom parameters" you'll see the id
