Creating Practise Launches

We recommend that you create a 'Practise' launch that students have available at all times. Remember that Practise launches do not send scores back to the grade book, use a Task launch for this.

  1. On your Schoolbox Class page, ensure you are in teacher view and the ‘unlock’ icon is enabled.
  2. Add a new component to your class page by clicking the '+' icon at the top right.
  3. Under the Multimedia tab, click and drag the component ‘Embed Learning Tool’ to where you with this to be positioned on your class page.
  4. Select the option ‘Auralia and Musition’.
  5. The title of this component has now changed to Auralia and Musition.  Select ‘content to embed’.
  6. You will be shown a menu allowing you to choose the activity. Select 'Musition Practice', give it a title and hit 'Submit'.
  7. Returning to your class page, the title of this component has updated.
  8. Teachers and students can click on 'Launch embedded tool' to launch 'Musition Practise' in a new tab.

Creating Tasks / Assignments

You can add links to Auralia and Musition to your Schoolbox pages; when a page is deployed to a Schoolbox class, the assignments will appear for your students. Once a task is complete, the grade is sent back automatically to the Schoolbox grade book.

  1. In the Course Outline of your Class page, click on the menu icon next to the name of the current topic or unit.
  2. From the drop down menu, select the option '3rd Party Assessment'
  3. Provide your assessment with a Title and Work Type.  Under the Learning Tool option, click and select the option Auralia and Musition.
  4. A window will appear asking you to select which tool is required for this assessment.  Select 'Musition Task' or 'Auralia Task' and then select 'Submit'.

    NOTE: Schoolbox will usually tell you "The selected resources does not seem to be an assessment" - you can IGNORE this.

  5. Provide the Due Date for this assessment, then school down and select 'Create'.
  6. You will see the assessment that you have just created in your Course Outline.  Click on the title of the assessment.
  7. Click 'Attempt Activity'.
  8. This will launch Auralia / Musition.
  9. In Auralia / Musition you can now connect your Schoolbox Assessment to an existing task or create a new task for this assessment. 
  10. Select 'Attach' when complete.
  11. Your assignment is now ready to go. When students open it, they will be taken directly into your chosen task in Auralia or Musition and results will flow back to your grade book.
  • You can also add links to Auralia & Musition Tasks using the instructions similar to 'Practise Launches' - please just double check to ensure that scores are syncing back to your markbook

Migration from LTI 1.1

To migrate from 1.1, you could edit each of the two LTI 1.1 tools you have registered, and send through details as per instructions above to have them each linked to Auralia / Musition. However, this will create more long term support issues; even though it may mean that you can 'reuse' any links that already exist in your courses.

We highly recommend that you simply create a single new connection as per above.
