Advanced Content Authoring and Reporting - Configure Pressbooks and the Learning Locker Learning Record Store (LRS)

This document describes how Learn@UW or local learning technology staff can configure your Pressbook to connect to the Learning Locker Learning Record Store (LRS).

If you want your interactive Pressbook module to send a grade to the Canvas gradebook or reports on how students interact with it you will need to contact your local learning technology support or a Learn@UW staff member (at learnuw_contentauth@lists.wisc.edu) to configure your Pressbook for this functionality. Once staff have configured your Pressbook they will let you know you can proceed to the next step as outlined in Advanced Content Authoring and Reporting - How to create interactive content in Pressbooks with H5P . School or college learning technology support staff can also contact Learn@UW to request access to Learning Locker in order to support instructors who want to use this solution.

Learn@UW or local learning technology staff: In order to send xAPI statements to Learning Locker, the H5P xAPI plugin needs to be configured for each Pressbook. To do that, you need to copy the endpoint, username and password from the appropriate Learning Locker organization and configure it in the H5P xAPI plugin in Pressbooks.

Copy the xAPI Endpoint, Key, and Secret from the appropriate Learning Locker client

  1. Login to Learning Locker LRS.
  2. Click on the University of Wisconsin-Madison organization most appropriate for your School or College. If there is not an organization setup for your School or College please contact us at learnuw_contentauth@lists.wisc.edu to request a Learning Locker Organization be setup:
