The ScreenPal LTI screen recorder integrates with many learning management systems. This article will help with the setup and use of our LTI app within the Moodle LMS for administrators and teachers.
You can read more in our blog article about ScreenPal and the Moodle LMS or you can watch a video tutorial on Moodle LTI setup.
Use of the LTI app is compatible with all plans; Free, Deluxe, and Premier.
If you are a teacher, you can use the ScreenPal LTI app with Moodle LMS without an admin. Read the instructions below or watch a video on how teachers can add the LTI app.
First, choose a course and go to the upper right and select the Settings Cog icon. Select Turn editing on.
Find a course module and click on Add an activity or resource.
If your admin has already configured ScreenPal, then you may find the LTI plugin listed in the Activities Menu. Select it and click Add.
A form appears. Under General, please fill out the following:
All done! As a teacher, you can now add recordings to courses. Here are additional instructions to add screen recordings, channels, or a ScreenPal screen recorder that your students can submit their own recordings with.
Login to your Moodle instance as an admin. Click on Site Administration, then Plugins.
Under Add Tool, input the following URL into the Tool URL field: https://screenpal.com/lti/xml and click Add.
To use the free version of the ScreenPal LTI, leave the Consumer Key and Shared secret blank and click Save Changes.
To easily enable teachers to add ScreenPal to their activities, click the settings cog shown below.
Scroll down to Tool configuration usage. From the drop-down menu, select Show in activity chooser as a preconfigured tool.
You're done! Now teachers can embed their screen recordings directly into their activities within Moodle LMS.
You can use the LTI App for your team to access the Deluxe Plan tools (screen recorder and video editor) and the Premier Plan tools with the advanced hosting features (embedding a video channel, adding a screen recorder button for student assignments, etc.)
In order for a Team Plan user to access the features of a Deluxe or Premier Plan, the admin for the plan will need to configure the LTI App with a private consumer key and secret.
First, login to ScreenPal with your Admin account and go to the Integrations area.
Make sure the LTI plugin is enabled (click the check box next to Use Pro Recorder in your LMS), and find the Key and Secret values in the applicable fields. Copy each value. We will take these values back to the Moodle configuration screen.
First, check to make sure your team account is upgraded to a Deluxe or Premier plan. Access to the video editor is only included within these plans.
If you have a Deluxe or Premier account, check your Moodle app settings (or ask your Moodle Administrator to check/configure) to make sure you have the consumer key and secret added in, as in the instructions above.
