Now that we've installed the LTI, let's add content!
1. In the Materials area, select Add Materials.
2. Select Interplay Learning
If you do not see Interplay Learning, reach out to your Schoology Admin to ensure the application has been installed for your course.
This will open up the Interplay Learning catalog where you can select the subject you are interested in.
You can search or filter the courses from this view.
Enter your search or filter criteria and select “Apply”. You can also clear all filters by selecting “Clear”.
To return to the main catalog selection screen at any time, use the “breadcrumbs” area at the top and select “Catalog”
Select a course from the list. It will open up additional information about the course including the course description and expected duration of the full course (including all lessons).
From here, you can select to include a link to the full course or just to an individual chapter.
Select the link under “Course Link” to include a link to the full course. Select a link under “Chapter Links” to include a link to a single individual chapter.
Once you have selected your course or chapter, it will be added to your Schoology course. If you wish to edit the title, you can.
Below is what your module should look like after you've selected your course or chapter.
During this process, please keep in mind: Do not click "Enable Grading"
It is very important that you do NOT select the “enable grading” option for Interplay Learning links. This will create duplicate Gradebook entries.
Instead, you should click on the link once as the instructor, this will create the gradebook column.
If you forget, the column will still be created the first time a student clicks on the content link, but you will no longer be able to edit the grading settings.
Please follow the steps below to enable your grading setup.
Do not click "Enable grading" when connecting your courses.
- In “Grade Setup” the “Weight Categories” option should be selected and a default category should be set.
- The Interplay Learning content links will be added to the default category.
Additionally, if you select the default category itself, the "Calculated by" option should be set to "Total pts."
