- Is there a Moodle integration for Coursetune?
Who can do this? To set up the integration, you must be an admin in both Coursetune and Moodle. After integration is set up, a Moodle user with the teacher role can add the Coursetune Graph Tool to their Moodle course.
Note: There are two integrations available.
- The Coursetune Graph Tool (install globally and then in any Moodle course where it's needed)
- The Coursetune Plugin for the Moodle TinyMC Editor (installs globally)
Here we will help you integrate the Coursetune Graph Tool with Moodle.

Install the Coursetune Graph Tool in a Course
NOTE: Any Moodle user with the teacher role can perform these steps. But admins may wish to test this in a course first.
A. To add the Coursetune Graph Tool to a course, navigate to the desired Moodle course and turn on editing for the course.
B. Choose "Add an activity or resource" and then choose "Coursetune Graph Tool" from the left side panel.
NOTE: If you don't see the Coursetune Graph Tool in the left panel of the "Add an activity or resource" panel, go back to Step E. of installing the Coursetune Graph Tool and double-check your settings.
C. For the Activity Name, call it “Coursetune Graph”. Then click “Save and Return to Course” at the bottom.
D. Using the edit menu to the far right of the new “Coursetune Graph” activity, choose "Hide" so that this tool does not show up to students (they will get an error message since they do not have Coursetune accounts).
E. Now when you click on the Coursetune Graph icon, Coursetune will launch and you’ll be able to link a course from your Coursetune account to this Moodle course. You will only have to do this once, Moodle and Coursetune will remember the relationship after that.
Now, faculty and staff will be able to access Coursetune. They can link their Moodle course to their Coursetune level-4 object (course), edit their Coursetune level-4 object while in Moodle, and extract elements from Coursetune into their Moodle course.
