In order to integrate CourseArc content with Moodle, the CourseArc System Administrator and Moodle administrator must work together to get the initial LTI connection set up. 


  1. Set up an LTI connection within CourseArc. Keep this page open in a new window for easy access.

  2. In Moodle, click on the Site administration link and then choose the Plugins tab.
    Note: Only a Moodle administrator can configure an LTI connection.
