Avendoo® online documentation

Content connector

The Content connector supports you on creating external content provider of the type LTI and Offline with XAPI feedback channel. The Content connector configures the feedback to Avendoo®.

Prerequisite for creating and editing in the Content connector is the access right Create and edit content connector, whereas you’ve set the check mark in the Author assistant or in the Permission groups wizard.

Then you create via the help of the content connector the remote content, which you select in the Web-based training wizard on the tab Preferences and integrate into a course and finally activate via the course activation. Furthermore you can activate the remote content via remote content activations, whereas you can do it single or for all.

If you have created a content connector of type Offline with XAPI feedback channel, you can use external learning content (see remote content) with XAPI feedback channel. After creating a content connector of type Offline with XAPI feedback channel, there will be an author on configuration. This author (log in type:API) is used for authentification at XAPI.

After creating a content connector, only the type LTI got the function Start deep linking in the overview table. Therefore you need the appropriate permission. You can select the default language, in which the remote content elements should be created, during the deeplinking process. You can show the default language on the tab Master data in the Remote content wizard. If no extra language is transferred, deeplinking uses the default language.

The overview table got the columns Title, Deep linking, Change date, Translation, Preview, Author and Created. If you click on the table header, you can edit the columns via the menu Edit display of columns and order. You can filter the following elements: Title, ID and Include subcategories.

There’s always a creation of a non-translatable medium in Avendoo® for the given preview image on each deep linking, on new or updated remote contents. Thus the old preview image, as already not used otherwise, is removed in the Avendoo® media. The preview image then is updated appropriate on remote content. You can delete the content and thus the preview image entry.

There are the mass processing functions MoveDelete and Copy for content connectors. More information about these functions you find under Content connectors: Mass processing functions.

The following functions are available via the context menu of the appropriate content connector title.

To create a new content connector, choose Resources → Content connector→ New  content connector. The content connector wizard opens.
