Canvas: LTI Integration (For Admins)

Last Updated: Jul 11, 2018 03:47PM EDT

The following steps explain how to configure the Canvas environment so that it can launch into Acrobatiq courseware via LTI. 


To set up an LTI Integration with Canvas Acrobatiq will need to be added as an external tool to your instance of Canvas and an LTI link will need to be added to each course shell.


 Step 1: Add Acrobatiq as an External Tool

  1. Navigate to Site Admin in Canvas and

  2. Click the Apps tab

  3. Click + App

  4. Complete the Add App form using information provided by Acrobatiq Support and click Submit.




NOTE: If your roles are not configured to automatically pass via LTI, they must be enabled for passage to Acrobatiq.



Step 2: Add LTI Link to Course
* This step can be performed by an LMS administrator of faculty member.

  1. Navigate to the course in Canvas and click +Module to add a module.

  2. From the Add Module pop up screen, enter a name for the Module and click Add Module.

  3. Once the Module has been added, Click the "+" (plus sign) to the right of the module name.

  4. In the Add Module pop up screen, Select External Tool from the drop down.

  5. Select the Acrobatiq tool by clicking on it.  Next, and enter your course LTI link in the URL field.  Instructors will also have the option to have the courseware open within the LMS screen or in a new tab. Once all selections are complete, click Add Item.



NOTE: When testing this link, a Canvas account with the role of "instructor" should be used, because Acrobatiq is expecting an instructor to use the link to attach an Acrobatiq course to the Canvas class environment. An "admin" role may receive an error.
