Moodle: Activities & Resources: External Tools: McGraw-Hill Campus

The McGraw-Hill Campus external tool integrates all your digital products from McGraw-Hill Education with Moodle for quick and easy access to content and learning tools. Using the McGraw-Hill Campus external tool allows for deep linking, which means that students can directly access activities and resources through the Moodle site. Deep linking also allows for gradebook synchronization, which can be manually triggered by the instructor in the McGraw-Hill course or set to automatically sync at regular intervals.

To use the McGraw-Hill Campus external tool, you must first add the McGraw-Hill AAIRS block to your course and use it to link the Moodle course to the McGraw-Hill site. For help with adding a block to your course, see Course Tools: Adding a Block. Once the block has been added, click in the block to pair your courses.

A note about support: Because the external tool activity links your Moodle course to an external website, troubleshooting most issues encountered in this tool should be done through McGraw-Hill customer support or the specific McGraw-Hill customer representative who helped set up the course. The LSU Faculty Technology Center can assist with any Moodle issues and can work with the tool's support team on Moodle-related gradebook sync concerns.

To Add the McGraw-Hill Campus Activity:

  1. Log in to Moodle and select your course.
  2. In the course section where you would like to add the McGraw-Hill Campus activity, click on Create learning activity.
