Hi all, I'm advising some CS students who are developing an application for a senior capstone project. They would like to use Moodle LTI to provision accounts for their app. However, they want faculty to be able to complete the process without requiring each student to launch the LTI in order to have an account created in the external tool. The students just need to be added to the external app so the teacher can mark assessment data for them, the students don't need to actually log in to it.
I advised them to look at LTI based on how the PollEverywhere LTI app functions. My school has the PE LTI app installed in our Moodle and I see the following functionality:
- Instructor adds the Polleverywhere LTI to a course
- On first launch, the instructor sees a button that launches an LTI URL that creates accounts in the external app (Polleverywhere). See below.
The students seem to be stuck and think that LTI requires each user to click the link in order to be populated into their app. I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas or pointers on how they can replicated the described functionality. Thanks!
