By creating Popfizz Activities on Moodle, teachers are able to add activities that allow students to single-sign-on to Popfizz and go straight to the designated assignments. In order to do this, LTI Integration needs to be complete. Also, your students will need to be added to the Popfizz course in order for the link activity to work.

To learn more about how to set up LTI integration, read this article.
