On Demand Moodle LTI Application Overview


Customers using the Moodle learning management system can embed content from On Demand directly in their courses.  For installation instructions, please refer to the On Demand Moodle LTI Application Installation article.


The Moodle plugin provides a rich integration between On Demand and your Moodle courses.  Users of Moodle will now be able to embed On Demand resources directly inside their courses, without having to leave the LMS.  This new plugin is LTI based and integrates directly into the standard Moodle Media button found wherever the HTML editor is within Moodle.



  1. LTI based application that does not require any user account maintenance within On Demand or Moodle.
  2. Quick and easy setup and installation.
  3. Seamless user experience that allows users to embed video, and custom content, directly into Moodle courses, anywhere where you can add an activity or resource, without ever leaving Moodle.
  4. Usage statistics are recorded within On Demand.


Using the File Picker Plugin

Once installed, On Demand resources may be embedded using the standard Moodle file picker interface.  Any activity or resource element within a course that includes the Media button in the HTML editor can now support embedded On Demand content.



From the course homepage, or anywhere that allows for the addition of an activity or resource, click on the Add an activity or resource, while in editing mode.  Select the type of activity or resource you would like to add, for example, an Assignment, or a Page.



From the Insert media pop up window, click on the Browse repositories button to view the File Picker interface.



Select the On Demand icon from the left-hand menu to access the search interface.  Enter a keyword or phrase in the box and click Search.  Your search results will resemble the below image.
