Warpwire in Populi

Warpwire provides integrated plugins to view and manage media within your LMS. Our seamless LTI integration means that all of Warpwire is accessible from within Populi. There are no accounts to create. Warpwire integrates with your institution's Single Sign-On system — giving every account access to Warpwire to securely view and manage video according to defined role and group permissions.

Best of all, every feature of Warpwire is easily accessible from within Populi: capture video, upload, organize, tag, and share. We’ve built Warpwire to function the same way no matter your point of access.

Warpwire Configuration Settings

First, you'll need the configuration URL in order to configure the Warpwire tool. Go to the tool setup page at: https://[YOUR-WARPWIRE-URL]/p/configureLTI/. You will replace "YOUR-WARPWIRE-URL" with your institution's domain, which has been provided to you by Warpwire. For example, if your Warpwire site is located at: https://warpwire.example.com", your [YOUR-WARPWIRE-URL] would be "warpwire.example.com".

On the the Warpwire LTI Configuration page, you will see a collection of settings for configuring the tool. While we recommend you keep everything as the default, you can modify the configuration settings to fit the needs at your organization (Fig. 1).

Installing Warpwire as a Global Tool in Populi

Follow the below instructrions to set up Warpwire as a Global Tool in Populi.


You can also follow this guide by Populi to install a Global Tool: https://support.populiweb.com/hc/en-us/articles/360045707994-Using-LTI-links.


Setting up a Global LTI tool must be completed by a Populi account administrator.

  1. First, go to Account > Account Settings > Integrations
  2. Click Add an integration
  3. For Integration type, select External LTI Tool
  4. Select the “Config URL” option for configuring the tool. The available options should be: Config URL, Pasted XML, or Manual Entry
  5. Enter in the options provided in the options section below
    • Name: For the Name you can choose something that is easily distinguish for instructors to select from their course, suggested names are: “Media Library”, “Warpwire”, “Warpwire Media Library”, etc.

Populi sometimes modifies the URL of the Warpwire tool. If this happens, you will need to make a simple change. Once you have installed the Warpwire tool, click on the three dots menu beside the tool name and then select “Edit”

The “Launch URL” must end in /api/ltix/. Sometimes the Populi system removes the final x. Simply add the x before the final / and press save, so the URL should look like: [https://%3cwebsite%3e/api/ltix/]https://<website>/api/ltix/

Adding Warpwire to the Course

Follow the steps in the “Using LTI tools in courses” in this Populi documentation: https://support.populiweb.com/hc/en-us/articles/360045707994-Using-LTI-links

Once in the course, you can easily add the newly installed Warpwire tool throughout the course. On any page in Populi that allows you to add a link, you can also add the Warpwire Media Library tool. For example, to add access to the Warpwire Media Library from the course’s syllabus you can now add a link to it. Simply follow the steps below:

1. Go to the Course > Syllabus view

Now when a student clicks on the link, it will automatically create the student’s account and will automatically add the student to the course. It will also give them access to the Media Library (Fig. 4).
