Encore Presentation: Using External Tools within Schoology (Lecture, 45 min)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Within Schoology there is a Material type called File/Link/External Tool, but just what is an External Tool? Schoology’s External Tool feature is used to set up LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) integrations, which allow users to access web-based resources within Schoology. This session explores what you need to do to configure an integration for a product that is LTI-compatible, how to configure it, and finally takes a look at how it works within a course for instructors.

Session Objectives:
1) Discuss why LTI resources can be a valuable addition to your Schoology environment.
2) Understand what questions to ask your resource provider to see if External Tools is an option.
3) Review the steps for configuring LTI resources to gain an understanding of what information is needed.
4) Learn how to use External Tools in courses.

Presented by:
Peter Keating
Business Development Analyst
New York, NY

Peter began his Schoology adventure as an intern in the summer of 2013. We liked him so much we brought him back immediately after he finished his BA in Economics from Boston College the following year. Peter attended the same high school as founders Jeremy and Bill, and his interest was piqued when he heard about the amazing things they were building in the world of education. As the son of an educator Peter has always had a passion for the field education, and was excited when his mother recently became a Schoology user in his family’s home district in Connecticut! Peter works on the Schoology Business Development team, focused on how Schoology integrates with 3rd party vendors.
