Learn how to integrate SOWISO into Moodle (LTI 1.3)

Updated over a week ago

❗Only Moodle Administrators can complete the integration of SOWISO into Moodle version 1.3.

General LTI - IMS & SOWISO

SOWISO has IMS Learning Tools Interoperability to connect to your Learning Management System (LMS), like Canvas, Brightspace or Moodle. The LTI connection will let you sign in automatically without having to insert a username and password again. Those are synchronised with the LMS.

When setting up SOWISO as an external source in the LMS, you must share with SOWISO the e-mail and name of the users.

How to edit the grade pushback settings

What's different with the new LTI 1.3 version?

  • We have improved the grade pushback functionality. Students' results (package progress and test result) can be updated (if a student does the same test twice, the new result will overwrite the old one in the LMS). This needs to be enabled in the LMS.

  • It provides a more secure connection between the LMS and the tool (SOWISO platform).
