Lt (previously known as Lab Tutor) is an online learning platform with ready-to-use content for life sciences, nursing, and medicine to help engage students with life science labs and lessons. This is used via a separate site from Moodle.
This integration allows syncing between your Moodle course and Lt lessons. A Moodle course can be mapped to an Lt folder that synchronises the student's enrolments and grade data.
For more details on the Moodle/Lt integration, this video highlights how this works.
Students can be synchronised from Moodle to Lt.
When the sync user enrolments link is clicked, changes in the Moodle course's student enrolment are reflected in Lt: adding, removing and updating students as required. When a student is added to the Lt folder they are sent an invite to create an Lt account.
When the sync grades button, from Lt, is clicked by the tutor, changes to the grades in Lt https://www.adinstruments.com/support/videos/lt-integration-moodle-linking-lessons-and-syncing-students-and-gradesare reflected in Moodle. Grades for lessons completed in the linked Lt folder are synchronised back into the Moodle Gradebook.
Lt licensed course administrators and tutors can add the Lt block to their Moodle course.
Ensure that you have appropriate access to the Lt course you're trying to connect to.
Check that no current students are enrolled in Lt. Any students that exist in your Lt folder but not in Moodle will be deleted from Lt.

The UCL e-Learning baseline suggests the following for orientation :
Provide an indicator of effort (such as timings or page counts) for all compulsory tasks
Link to instructions for any e-learning tools that students are expected to use.
For student active participation it is suggested that:
In the Topic section you want to add the content to select + Add an activity or resource.
Click External tool from the options that appear.
Choose the Lt (licensed use only) tool from the list for 'preconfigured tool'
When you first open the Lt tool you will be asked to login with your Lt account.
This will link Moodle and Lt accounts to determine what content is visible to you and what permissions you have. If you don’t yet have an Lt account, talk to an Instance Administrator for your Lt instance or your ADInstruments representative.
Click Select Content.
Select your Lt course name in the dropdown menu.
Use the tick box(es) to select the Lt lesson(s) you wish to link to from the course.
Only those lessons that have been published in the Lt course will appear.
Click the Link Selected Content button. This will create a Tool URL.
Click Save and return to course.
The new link should now be listed at the bottom of the section on Moodle.
When they click on the activity, the student will be taken to the Lt lesson directly. If they haven't yet logged in Lt, they will be prompted to enter their Lt credentials before seeing the content.
You will need to run this synchronisation manually every time your Moodle student list changes, for the students to have access to the Lt content in your lesson.
Keep in mind that the student list for your Moodle course can be synced with multiple Lt courses.
It’s important to check that the linked Lt lesson you use to sync students is contained within the Lt course you wish your students to be synced to.
The Lt course is displayed in the LTI tool after 'Connect to'. e.g. the Lt course CSM101 would be displayed as Connected to CSM101.
1. Select the link to the Lt lesson students are to access.
2. Click the Sync Students button.
3. Read and confirm that the changes presented in the Sync Students pop-up reflect what you wish to occur.
Once Sync Accounts Now has been selected, students will be sent an email invite to the Lt course the linked Lt lesson is within.
Once the students' work is graded in Lt, this process will synchronise all grades from the linked Lt lesson(s) to the Moodle gradebook.
If a lesson has a negative grade in Lt it will become zero in Moodle. If a lesson has grade greater than its maximum in Lt then it will be reduced to the maximum grade for that lesson.
1. Click the link in your Moodle course to the Lt lesson that contains the grades you wish to sync to your Moodle course gradebook.
2. Click the Sync button next to the Lt lesson in the 'Sync Grades from Lt Grading' section.
Any student who has linked their Lt and Moodle accounts, and has a grade for an Lt lesson, will have that grade entered into the Moodle gradebook for this Moodle course.
If no grade currently exists for that Lt lesson, a blank line in the Moodle gradebook will still be added. This can be updated by syncing grades once the grade exists.
