Inclusive Access: LTI Set Up | Moodle

Print Friendly and PDF

What is LTI?

 

LTI is an abbreviation for Learning Tools Interoperability, which is a standard protocol developed by the IMS Global Learning Consortium. It allows services like Logos to integrate with your Learning Management System (LMS) as single-sign-on tools.

 

The resulting experience for instructors and students is simple:

  1. Sign into your LMS.
  2. Navigate to your course.
  3. Click on the Logos LTI link.
  4. Access essential tools and textbooks in the Logos Web App.

 

Clicking on a Logos LTI link will enable instructors to associate the correct textbooks with their course and allow students to create or sign in to an existing Logos account and access their course materials.  No additional work is required from the instructor or student.

 

LTI Tool Configuration 

Before instructors can use a Logos LTI link for their course, it must be configured globally for your LMS by an administrator.  The steps below will help guide you through this process.  

 

First, sign in to Moodle as an administrator and open the Manage tools page

Click Site administration > Plugins > Activity modules > External tool / Manage tools

 

Next, you will choose a configuration method — Dynamic Registration (recommended) or Manual Registration.

NOTE: Dynamic Registration requires Moodle version 3.10 or newer.
