I have been experimenting a little bit more with Moodle and LTI. I truly believe this is HUGE. I mean this is incredible stuff. LTI which stands for Learning Tools Interoperability is a new way for systems like Moodle, WordPress, Joomla, MediaWiki, and other websites to communicate and share activities with each other.
For instance, I can create a really great lesson in Moodle and then I can share it with other LTI compliant systems and it will automatically populate my gradebook with their results as well as return results to the other system. This is going to usher in a whole new way of thinking and sharing in education. I can share an entire course, section, activity, you name it and I can share it outside of my Moodle.
Last week I was able to connect to ChemVantage and bring in Chemistry resources into our Moodle using LTI. This week I am exploring the ability to share moodle activities and resources outside of my Moodle install. I also am trying to get WordPress and Moodle integrated. So far, not looking promising. I am stuck on something Wordpress LTI settings.
