As with other learning management systems (LMS), integrating Zaption into Schoology using our LTI key allows: Single Sign-On for all users between your LMS and Zaption, the ability to select and play specific Zaption lessons to assign to students, and the integration of scores from a Zaption lesson and Schoology’s Gradebook. This is a Zaption Pro feature.
1) In your course, select External Tool Providers from the Course Options dropdown menu, located beneath the course picture.
2) Select Add External Tool Provider and enter the appropriate credentials in the fields that appear.
Tool Name: Zaption

5) In this new window, simply select Zaption as your Tool Provider and specify the title. You may want to make this the title of the lesson you are going to select. Your configuration URL and keys will be automatically specified. Leave the Custom Parameters field empty.

7) Once you select Submit, the external tool will appear in your course. To select a lesson you would like students to take, just click the external tool. If you have not logged in to Zaption yet, you will be prompted to login. From then on your Schoology account and Zaption account will be linked and you will not have to sign-in again.
8) Once you’ve logged in to Zaption, you will have the opportunity to select the lesson you would like students to view. You should see a page similar to the My Lessons page, but it will only include published lessons. When you rollover the lessons, it will say Select Lesson. Select the lesson you would like students to view.
9) On the student side, they will be able to take the lesson and respond to all questions, including the graded multiple choice questions.
10) Once the student has taken the lesson and received a score on the graded items, the grade will appear in your Gradebook. The responses will also be available in the Lesson Analytics on Zaption.com.
