    Tried the plugin in Moodle 2.9 but got the following error: textlib_get_instance() can not be used any more, please use core_text:: functionname() instead.

    The plugin worked fine in Moodle 2.8. It would be nice to get it back up in 2.9 smile Thank you!

    This plugin will not install in Moodle 3.0. The following error is encountered:

    Plugin "local_ltiprovider" is defective or outdated, can not continue, sorry.
    Debug info: Missing $plugin->component declaration in version.php.
    Error code: detectedbrokenplugin

    The component should be 'local_ltiprovider'.

    I'm getting this error for moodle 3.1

    Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: Invalid state passed to moodle_page::set_state. We are in state 0 and state 2 was requested.

    Hi Juan, I note that the LTI provider provides access to full courses or activities from remote systems. We are hoping to provide access to both our course content (online courses) and our calendar events (live webinars) with remote systems. Can I configure a calendar event to be available to remote systems via this LTI Provider, or is that not possible? Thanks in advance.

    Juan and Christopher, there is no need to use this plugin in Moodle 3.1, since LTI provider functionality is included as standard. Please see the documentation https://docs.moodle.org/en/Publish_as_LTI_tool for details.

    Dear Helen, Dear Juan,
    Though you are right that in Moodle 31 there is the option to publish as LTI tool, there are at least 2 reasons to keep using the local_ltiprovider:
    1) existing users can't change the LTI url so easy, or you have a lot of LTI tools already active and can't change these on short notice to the new URL
    2) In Moodle's own publish as LTI tool, you cannot add extra CSS, which is a really big plus for me to use the local_lti_provider.....

    I however, keep getting the message "you cannot enrol yourself in this course" when I use a link from the local_ltiprovider....

    So, if I understand correctly, you don't have the option for hiding the header/footer/blocks when you share a tool through LTI in Moodle 3.1, 3.2 or 3.3, right? That's something only this plugin provides at the moment, but, unfortunately, this plugin doesn't work with these Moodle versions. That's a real shame. hiding header/footer/blocks was an awesome feature!!!

    Hi,

    I am using the LTI Provider in Moodle2.9 to integrate with Canvas LMS. Successfull authentication is happening and users are able to take quiz activity in Moodle.

    But grades are not passing back to Canvas, I am getting "Error while processing content unencoding: invalid block" when cron is executed.

    Please help me out in finding the cause of the issue.

    Thank You..

    Hello,

    I am using Moodle 3.0.3 version. I have installed this plugin, as per the context here "https://docs.moodle.org/30/en/LTI_Provider", i have followed the instructions. A new link called "LTI Provider" is shown in the course navigation block. But when I clicked on it, it is showing 500 internal error page.

    Please help me on moving forward.

    Thanks
    Sricharan
