Setting up LTI integration

Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) enables users to seamlessly connect their MediaCore site to their other learning platforms such as Moodle and Canvas. LTI gives students and staff the ability to single-sign-on to their MediaCore account with one click from their existing learning environment.

Setting up LTI takes only a couple of minutes, and comes free with all MediaCore sites.

Once LTI is enabled please follow the simple steps below to activate it on your MediaCore site:

1) Click on "Site Settings" in your dropdown menu.

2) Click on "Authentication" in the left sidebar and turn the "Learning Tools Interoperability" toggle on. 

3) Click on the "Configure LTI Consumers" link and select "Add New".

4) Create a "LTI Consumer key" and "Shared Secret". This is used to link your MediaCore account to the learning platform(s) of your choice. You can enter any combination of letters, numbers or symbols for either of these fields. Note: It's a good idea to choose a distinguishing name for the Consumer Key if you plan on having multiple Consumer Keys. 

5) Decide what Media you want your LTI users to have access to by selecting the appropriate Collection(s).

6) Check off the box next to "Also include collections shared with the Public & Registered Users groups" if you would like your LTI users to have access to media in these two collections.

7) Check off the box next to "LTI Contexts" if you would like MediaCore to automatically create a Collection for you when you upload Media to a new course page in Moodle. Select the Collection you would like all new Collections to be placed in. We recommend creating a Collection called "Moodle or Canvas Collection" Once all fields have been filled in click "Save".

Once you have set up your "LTI Consumer key(s)" within MediaCore go to the learning platform(s) of your choice to configure the  LTI application. Instructions on how to configure LTI in Moodle can be found here.
