Since long-term learning relies on linking new information to pre-existing knowledge, it is important for teachers to be able to visualise the learners’ evolution.
Wooclap complies to the LTI standardIn late 2018, we announced our Moodle plug-in, Wooclap’s first LMS (Learning Management System) integration. Today, Wooclap can integrate many other LMS thanks to the LTI standard. What is the LTI standard? The IMS Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standard prescribes a way to easily connect learning applications and tools with platforms like learning management systems in a secure and standard manner. OK, but why? Integrating Wooclap into your LMS will synchronise data between the two platforms, including the polls you have created and the students’ grades.

Launching Wooclap’s Moodle plug-inSome of you might remember Wooclap announced a first, small-scale integration with Moodle back in March, which allowed users to import and export files across both platforms. While this is convenient, we saw more potential in that venture. That is why, over the summer, our team developed the Moodle integration more in-depth to grant users of both platforms a more comfortable experience.
