Turn on Warpwire for your course in Moodle

If you don't see the Warpwire link in Moodle, you may need to turn on Warpwire for your course. Note that only admins are able to turn on Warpwire. If you don't manage Moodle for your institution, get in touch with someone who does!

Begin by navigating to the Moodle course you want to add Warpwire too, and logging in.

Next, click the "Turn Editing On" button, in the upper-right of the screen, which will allow you to add the Warpwire tool wherever you'd like.

Click "+ Add Activity or Resource" in the location where you'd like the Warpwire tool link to appear.
