Auralia and Musition Cloud can be registered in your school LMS as external tools, allowing you to link tasks in your LMS to tests in Auralia and Musition. Students’ test results will be automatically reported back to your LMS gradebook.

In order to set up integration, please contact us and let us know which LMS you are using, and what version of LTI you wish to use. We will then provide you with the necessary setup and security information. Many different LMS are supported, including those below.

Your LMS administrator will need to register external tools for Auralia and Musition so that you can use them in your courses. For each of Auralia and Musition we support two different tools:
A task launch connects a task in your LMS with a specific "Test" or "Course" in Auralia or Musition. When you first launch the task from the LMS, you will need to attach it to an Auralia or Musition "Test" or "Course".
The results of the attached item are then reported back to the LMS.
Please refer to this document for details on how to create a task and link to a Test or Course.
A practise launch opens Auralia or Musition for general practise. Students can practice any topic but cannot take Tests or Courses, these must be done via a Task launch.
No results are reported back.
