Creating and Managing Placements

After you have added a new LTI provider, it appears on the LTI providers list. From here, you can manage the placement of the tool in Learn. Creating a name and placing the tool in a menu in Learn is not required, but it makes it easy for end users to find and use. End users adding the LTI tool to their courses do not have to know the tool URL or secret key.

  1. Go to System Admin > Building Blocks > Building Blocks > LTI Tool Providers page.

  2. Select the check-box next to the newly created LTI provider domain and click the Approve button. Next hover over the name and click on Mange Placements.

  3. Click the Create Placement button

      1. Enable the tool in Courses

      2. Enable the tool in Departments

    2. Set your Creation of Tool Provider Links to:
