Laerdal Medical plugin for Moodle

This plugin enables Moodle 3.0+ teachers and admins to create Laerdal Medical activities that is launched externally on the Laerdal Medical EcoHub platform.

Introduction

As this is an LTI Source type plugin, hence an LTI sub-plugin, it adds support for creating external activities launched using the LTI standard on the Laerdal Medical E-learning platform called EcoHub. Although EcoHub accepts standard LTI launch parameters, using this plugin will enable full analytics support for tracking user compliance, metrics etc.for Laerdal Medical customers.

How it works

The EcoHub platform adheres to LTI-1p0 standards (see https://www.imsglobal.org/specs/ltiv1p0). In order to provide eplicit analytics data for users, departments, institutions and organizations, several LTI parameters must be present and some must even be unique. Most of these parameters are custom parameters. When a student start a Laerdal Medical activity the LTI parameters are modified by this plugin just before the launch, providing additional information in the LTI custom parameters.

Privacy

As the information provided to Laerdal Medical may be obtained from the Moodle user profiles, administrators should be aware of the plugin configuration. The configuration is determined per installation and be default, no user specific data is sent to Laerdal Medical. The administrator can see the exact mappings from site or user profile data to LTI parameters on the settings page of the plugin. This page also displays sample data for each mapping.

Potential privacy issues

With this plugin administrators can pass user profile data on to the Laerdal Medical EcoHub platform. The data is only accessible to the customer for analytics purposes and to a limited number of trusted Laerdal Medical personell.

    Hi Martin!
    I don't have enough information to check the plugin functionality. I guess that I need the URL of an external tool of the EcoHub. Could you give me more details?
    The source control and bug tracker URLs don't work.

    Hi Victor,

    Yes, you will need an activity for the external tool to test this. We have a test course we often use for various purposes, which you can use. The details are here:

    Tool URL: https://cstestn.contentservice.net/launch_lti?manifest=manifest/test-course
    Consumer key: f9dfaf8c-c10e-4c40-bb31-b89dc2a3f917|9cs36-chyd2-jhx82-87544
    Shared secret: 1e972894a53eb3f2

    How it is setup with regards to grades and completion is not important, as it is the activity's LTI launch parameters this plugin affects.

    I am sorry about the defunc'ed source control and bug tracker URL's, they have been corrected now.
