Using Poodll LTI on your Moodle site you can add Poodll activities such as ReadAloud and audio recording assignments, to your courses without installing Poodll. With Poodll LTI set up as an external tool, Poodll activities are available from the activity chooser, almost as though they were installed locally. 



Fetch Poodll LTI Credentials

You will need a set of credentials to gain access to Poodll LTI. To request your own set of credentials, contact Poodll at:

 https://poodll.com/lti


Or use the demo set below. These are shared between other users and will reset course content every 24 hours. So use them for testing, not for production:



Tool URL:

Getting Started

The procedure to configure a Poodll External App has several steps but should take only a few minutes.


1. Open the course settings page.
2. From the Apps tab, click on "View Apps Configurations" button and then click the "+App" button
3. On the Add App dialog, choose the configuration type:
 "By URL"
4. Fill in the remaining fields on the dialog. 
  1. Name: Enter "Poodll LTI" or something that you will recognize later when you need to select it.
  2. Consumer Key: Enter the Consumer Key provided by Poodll.
  3. Shared Secret: Enter the Shared Secret provided by Poodll.
  4. Config URL: Enter the Tool URL provided by Poodll.

Request your Poodll LTI credentials at https://poodll.com/lti . Or for testing you may use the demo credentials (which reset daily). These are also available at the top of this page.

Press "Submit" when finished and your Poodll LTI App will be created.
5. Your Poodll LTI App still requires one more configuratio step. This is to fit the Poodll activities nicely inside the Canvas iFrame container that displays them.

Select "edit" from the newly created Poodll LTI App listing on the External Apps page.
6. In the custom fields text area enter :
force_embed=1

And save the page.









Congratulations.
