Moodle - How to add Labster simulations to your course (LTI 1.3)


  • The LMS Admin has to register the Labster tool prior to you adding the simulations to your course

  • You must have either teacher or administrator credentials to be able to add simulations to your course

Note: if you do not have Labster installed as an external tool, please ask your LMS administrator to contact your Labster Customer Success Manager!

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Log in as an instructor.

  2. Go to the course you would like to add content to.

  3. Click on the Turn editing on button (up right corner).

  4. Click on the +Add an activity or resource button.

  5. Choose External Tool.

  6. Under Preconfigured tools choose Labster.

  7. Click Select Content (This is critical❗).

  8. Once you click on the tool, a pop-up window will appear within your Moodle course. You can browse our entire catalog (including all the supplementary resources) within this pop up - click on the name of any simulation to learn more!

  9. The page that loads is the simulation catalog. Here, you can either search for a specific simulation using the search bar at the top, or scroll down to find your simulations. You may also use various filters to narrow down your search. Once you find the simulation you wish to add to your course, simply click on the +Add button and the simulation will appear in your course.

  10. After you have added the simulation, you will be able to use Moodle settings to set up everything else for your Labster assignment (Simulation points, Due Date, Launch container, Visibility to students, etc.)

When you have finished setting up the assignment settings, click Save and Display
