Enabling the Momotor app for a course¶
Enabling the app for a course is done by adding it to the course navigation. In Canvas, the course navigator is configured from:
By default, the Momotor tab is hidden. To make it visible, click the drop-down arrow at the end of the Momotor tab and click enable or drag the Momotor tab to the top section.
The Momotor tab can be positioned anywhere in the navigator, but since Momotor is related to the assignments, we advise to put it directly beneath the Assignments tab.
Save the changes to the navigator. The Momotor section should now be available in the navigator.
Disabling the Momotor app¶
The app can be removed from the navigation by moving the Momotor tab in the course navigator to the hidden section.
This will only remove the app from the navigator making it impossible to access, but existing configuration and results will not be deleted and processing of submissions for configured assignments will remain active.
Upgrading from LTI 1.0¶
“LTI” is the protocol that Canvas uses to integrate Momotor. There are multiple versions, the latest supported by Momotor LTI being LTI 1.3. Older LTI versions have been deprecated.
Unfortunately, the upgrade from the older version to the latest LTI version is not done automatically. If you see the following message when opening Momotor:
you need to upgrade the integration. This can be done by going toin Canvas, disabling the active “Momotor” tab and enabling the disabled “Momotor” tab. Unfortunately these have the same label and cannot be visually distinguished.
If the new integration is active, the warning shown above will not show when re-opening Momotor.
