Desire 2 Learn (D2L/BrightSpace): create a single sign-on link to your course

Last Updated: Sep 10, 2016 03:20PM EDT

Using an Acrobatiq course in your D2L/BrightSpace class involves two steps:

  1. A one-time integration, in which Acrobatiq is added as an External Learning Tool provider. (ADMIN step)

  2. Adding a single sign-on link in your Desire 2 Learn class to Acrobatiq. (FACULTY step)

 

Integration (D2L/BrightSpace ADMIN step)

Set up integration with a tool provider:

  1. Email Acrobatiq Support to request a key and secret.

  2. Click the External Learning Tools link in the Admin Tools widget.

  3. Select the Manage Tool Providers tab.

  4. Click New Tool Provider.

  5. Enter the base URL courses.acrobatiq.com (do not include http://).

  6. Enter the secret supplied by Acrobatiq Support in the Secret field.

  7. Click Use custom tool consumer information instead of default check box and update the appropriate fields, including the key value supplied by Acrobatiq Support.

  8. Click Save.

Additionally, you'll need to enable three values to be communicated with Acrobatiq via LTI:

  • ‚ÄčName

  • Email

  • Role

 

Adding a single sign-on link (FACULTY step)

These instructions can be followed only after your D2L administrator has added Acrobatiq as an External Learning Tool provider on your site.

  1. Click the admin settings icon in the top right (gear icon).

  2. Choose External Learning Tools

  3. Under the header "Manage External Learning Tools Links" click the button labeled New Link.

  4. Add a title for your link, such as "Acrobatiq Intro to Psychology."

  5. Enter the URL for your Table of Contents page. In a separate browser tab open the Acrobatiq course you're linking and navigate to the Table of Contents. NOTE: DO NOT obtain your Table of Contents link by right-clicking on the course title on your My Courses page and copying the link.

  6. Key/Secret section. Ensure "Sign messages with key/secret with" is selected and then choose one of the two options that follow: Tool consumer key/secret, or Link key/secret. Consult your D2L/BrightSpace admin to determine which option your school is configured to use.

    • Tool consumer key/secret. This option configures your link to employ the key and secret that your D2L
    /BrightSpace admin used when setting up Acrobatiq as an External Tool Provider using the instructions at the top of this page. The Acrobatiq key and secret are referenced every time you build an Acrobatiq link, so entering the key and secret are NOT necessary every time you create a new Acrobatiq link.

    • Link key/secret. Choose this option if you must enter the key and secret for each link you create. The key and secret have been shared with your D2L
    /BrightSpace admin, or you can email Acrobatiq Support: support@acrobatiq.com.

  7. Do not add any custom parameters.

  8. In Security Settings, select these fields so the Acrobatiq gradebook can populate properly:
    Send tool consumer information to tool provider
    Send user ID to tool provider
    Send user name to tool provider
    Send user email to tool provider
    Do not select the other options
