The library has many resources that can be linked to or embedded in your Moodle Classroom. Before doing so, we recommend talking to a librarian first. Doing so will ensure the following:
However, if you want to try to embed resources yourself, we have a simple reference guide for ensuring stable, off-campus links.
Academic Writer has many tutorials and examples that you may want to embed in courses for students.
If you wish to share this content with another or embed in a course, you can use the embed link found on the top right above the content.
Within the embed code, you will need to edit to add our proxy prefix. The prefix is used if anyone may be accessing this content off-campus. At this time, Academic Writer settings do not allow us to add this into the code for you.
To edit this code, anywhere you see a link to http://apastylecentral.apa.org you should add our prefix in front of the http://. Tiffin University's prefix is https://tu.opal-libraries.org/login?url= . In the end, your link should look something like this:
Within Moodle, an external tool option has been enabled. This creates a link for students to enter Academic Writer directly through Moodle. With this integration, they will only need to sign into their account once from your course through that link. After that initial log in, a single sign-on from Moodle to Academic Writer will be enabled where they can take full advantage of all the features in this guide.
With the external tool option, we also have access to pre-made assessments for APA style to test student knowledge with grade book integration. These assessments can be paired with tutorials within the platform. The available assessments include the following:
These are the same as the self-quiz options available in the Learn tab of the platform. If you are interested in learning more or integrating these tests into your course, please contact Moodle Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In complement to our AID program, we have a quiz to help test student knowledge in plagiarism and academic integrity at Tiffin University. Get in contact with your librarian to learn more about how to integrate into Moodle.
