1. Sign up on Poodll.com

To use Poodll plugins you will need an account on Poodll.com. Sign up for one of the paid subscriptions at https://poodll.com/poodll-pricing.  Or take a free trial.


2. Register your site URLs

Poodll registers your sites as they appear in your Moodle site configuration file. Your registration is checked against that when Poodll runs. To do this, go to http://poodll.com/member and enter your Moodle site's URL/domain (start from http/https). 




Most paid Poodll plans allow you to use a wildcard '*' in place of the www (or other subdomain) to enable all subdomains, e.g https://*.mycoolsite.com .  NB The URL needs to begin with "https" or "http"


Poodll also generates a registration code for each registered URL beneath the URL field. That is for the old system and you do not need that registration code for ReadAloud)


3. Copy your API User and API Secret

Poodll uses your API username and API secret to allow your site users access to Poodll. You will find the API username and API secret on the "API Creds" tab of the https://poodll.com/member page. 




4. On ReadAloud admin settings page, enter the API username/secret


In your Moodle site, in the settings page for Read Aloud, add the API username and secret.  Find that at:

Site administration ->Plugins -> Activity modules -> Read Aloud activity
 


Poodll checks every 12 hours so for any subscription updates. So when you renew or upgrade your subscription (eg from free trial to a paid one) the Poodll plugins know about that automatically. You do not need to update any settings for them. But you can speed things up by pressing the "Refresh license information" link. This will tell Poodll to check immediately.
