Admin – one time process

General

This is a one-time step in which you create a new “External Tool” in Moodle.0′;

The “External Tool” holds the details of your Leganto account.

Three parameters were generated after you created the LTI Integration Profile in Alma.

You will be asked to supply these parameters when creating the “External Tool”.

 

Manage External Tool Types

Go to Site administration => Plugins => Activity modules => LTI => Manage external tool types

 

Add an External Tool Configuration

 

Configure external tool

Fill in the following values:
Tool name –         This name will be seen by whomever creates LTI links in your courses (next step).
                           We recommend using a name such as “Leganto Reading List” or just “Reading List”
                           (or another meaningful name).
Tool base URL –   Take this from the Alma LTI configuration profile, from field ‘Launch URL
Consumer key –   Take this from the Alma LTI configuration profile, from field ‘LTI Key
Shared secret –    Take this from the Alma LTI configuration profile, from field ‘LTI Secret
Custom parameters – Copy paste the following: lis_course_code=$CourseSection.sourcedId 
Check ‘Show tool type when creating tool instances’
Default launch container – Change value to ‘New window’.
Click “Save”.

You are now ready to Create a Leganto Link in a Course
