Important: It’s important to do this first to reduce confusion between the two separate integrations that are available.

 

These instructions are for setting up LTI 1.3 for schools and districts that have used Nearpod for LTI 1.1 in the past. This step will remove the LTI 1.1 Nearpod app from your LMS and from the courses. This will not impact your Moodle gradebook.

  2. Select ‘Site administration’ from the top tab navigation
  3. Select ‘Plugins’ tab, then select Manage Tools from the list under ‘Activity modules’ Screenshot
  4. Locate the Nearpod LTI 1.1 tool that was previously installed. 
  5. Select the trash can Screenshot and select Delete from the pop-up modal that appears.
