Getting Started

Using this integration, your students will be able to skip the normal registration and login process by simply clicking a link on your Moodle course page. They will be automatically logged in through a linked account. If they do not already have a Lingco account, one will be created for them using their student information from Moodle. You will only need to perform this process once per course.

To start, log in to your instructor account on Moodle and make sure you have Edit Mode turned on. You can do that by clicking the "Turn editing on" button as shown below:

Add Lingco as an External Tool

Press the “Add an activity or resource” button next to the first topic in the course:

Select External Tool and click Add:

Give the activity a name like "Log in to Lingco", and then press the “+” next to the “Automatic, based on tool URL” dropdown:

This will open a new page with advanced options.

Use the following settings:

TOOL SETTINGS

Tool Name: Lingco Login

Tool URL: https://class.lingco.io/lti_login

Next, to get the Consumer Key and Shared Secret, open Lingco Classroom in a different browser tab, navigate to the Course Dashboard in your course and click Course Details.

Copy the Consumer key and Shared secret into Moodle and click Save Changes.

On the external tool page, change the Grade to be None and click Save and Display.

After that, you’re done! Your students can now click the Login Login link to sign on automatically to Lingco.



NOTE: This process will need to be repeated for each course since each course has a unique consumer key and shared secret.
