How to Link MyMedia to your MyLO Unit


  • This process requires that you have already completed a request for, and had confirmation of, a MyMedia unit - you need a MyMedia space for your unit if you are using Personal Capture or have a scheduled recording in a room.
  • The link tool in MyLO uses Learning Tools Interoperability, so is often called an LTI tool, or just LTI for short.

WARNING: Once you have completed the configuration of the link in MyLO DO NOT access the link while impersonating a student role. The link passes through your credentials from MyLO and so will revoke your instructor role in the linked ALP unit.

Add the MyMedia Recordings Link

  • Log in to MyLO.
  • Navigate to the unit where you wish to add the link.
  • Click Content then select the module where you want to create the link to the recordings.
    • We recommend making a Lecture Recordings module for this link.
  • Pull down the Existing Activities menu and select External Learning Tools.
  • Select MyMedia Recordings (ALP).
  • Note - If there is a pre-existing link to old content ( copied over via your previous content) then you should delete this link first, then re-create your new link.

Edit the MyMedia Recordings Link

  • Pull down the Options Tab at the end of the MyMedia Recordings Link and select Edit Properties In Place.
  • Edit Properties in PlaceTick the Open as External Resource box.
  • Quit out of the Link's properties by clicking on the unit title (usually "Lecture Recordings") under the table of contents.
