What this means is that Moodle users can blog in WordPress inside a walled garden environment (Moodle 2.5). At the same time, the WordPress url is accessible on the Internet. If you’re an English teacher who wants your students to write more, you might be interested in this integration. Imagine having all the world-class benefits of WordPress blogging, all inside a Moodle course page with a shared single-sign-on!
Our goal is to use Google Docs as a learning Tool within the boundaries of any LMS, Moodle in particular since the base technology is developed at http://code.google.com/p/basiclti4moodle another one of our projects.
An Example A teacher creates an assignment. This assignment will be completed by the student in a Google Docs Document (Word processor, Spreadsheet, Slideshow, Image … ). The teacher will be able to see the work, its progress, make annotations, and grade it on the LMS.

How to use LTI External Tool Activities in Moodle These days I’ve been playing around with LTI Learning Tools Interoperability and Moodle. I wanted to test what else could I do with this tool beyond providing a WP blog account to my School. The number Edu Apps built on LTI that we can use in our classes are increasing more and more everyday.
Embedding external Tools using LTI
What is an Open LTI App Collection?
I have developed a patch for the current core Moodle component: “External Tool” plugin (which is a LTI Consumer implementation) that “Enable teachers to add (read config.xml uri) tools from the edu-apps.org LTI catalog” . Please vote for it Or use it with your system, If you find it useful.
Until the above patch is integrated into Moodle’s core, You can use a little external and independent tool I developed:
Extract LTI info from edu-apps.org config.xml files (url)
LTI Usability improvements
This session is about exploring how to improve the use of external (LTI) tools in Moodle.
If you’re looking for tools that integrate into Moodle without custom mods installed, LTI is your ticket. Let’s take a moment to check back into the LTI App clearing house, Edu Apps which now lists over 125 LTI enabled tools that you can integrate into your site or classroom.
