This module is an extension for WebPA version 2+. It adds the required functionality to allow WebPA to be integrated with an LTI-compliant VLE (such as Blackboard Learn 9, WebCT or Moodle). The IMS Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) specification provides a standard mechanism by which external learning applications can be securely launched from within an on-line course. The module will work with any VLE supporting LTI. When a user first connects to WebPA their user account is automatically created and they are given the appropriate role in the module (which is also automatically created). There is no need to provision WebPA separately. In addition to launching WebPA, the module will also take advantage of the following LTI services if they are available:

memberships - to allow tutors to synchronise enrolments with the VLE; groups enhancement to memberships- to allow tutors to synchronise groups with the VLE; outcomes - to allow tutors to return the grades from a marked assessment to the grade book in the VLE; setting - to record the date/time when the enrolments and grades were last synchronised.

The memberships service (including the groups enhancement) is also available for Moodle and Canvas instances via their API.

This plugin is written by Stephen P Vickers as part of the JISC-funded ceLTIc project.

Before downloading the application you can try it out by requesting a free trial consumer key and secret which will be valid for 14 days.
