External tool FAQ
What is the External tool?
The external tool is an activity module supporting LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability). It is similar to SCORM as a standard for educational objects, but instead of being a package of content that is uploaded to Moodle, LTI is a way of integrating the functionality provided by another system into your course.
How can I get my external tool activity to display on the Dashboard in the Course overview block?
Set an 'Expect completed by' date in the Activity completion section in the External tool settings.
Any further questions?
Please post in the LTI and Moodle forum on moodle.org
