Hey School Admin! Having trouble setting up your Edlink-connected LTI app in your Canvas?

Here are the steps.

Seeing your app open in a new window when you click on the launch link? And you'd like it to open in an i-frame within Canvas?

Let's troubleshoot.

Step 1

Check with your contact at the app that their tool will work if it's opened within an i-frame in Canvas.

Not sure? Reach out to us at support@ed.link and we'll help you get the answer.

Once you get confirmation that the app can be opened inside of Canvas, proceed to Step 2.

Step 2

Delete the app you just installed.

You can do this by selecting your school from the Admin menu. Select Settings and then Apps. Select your app and hit Delete.

Step 3

Re-install the app using the steps outlined in this article.

When you re-install, use the following XML file. Make sure to fill in the highlighted fields:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<blti:launch_url>YOUR EDLINK LAUNCH URL</blti:launch_url>

<blti:title>THE NAME OF YOUR APP</blti:title>

<blti:description>THE DESCRIPTION OF YOUR APP</blti:description>

<blti:extensions platform="canvas.instructure.com">

<lticm:property name="privacy_level">public</lticm:property>

<lticm:options name="course_navigation">

<lticm:property name="url">YOUR EDLINK LAUNCH URL</lticm:property>

<lticm:property name="enabled">true</lticm:property>

<lticm:property name="default">enabled</lticm:property>




This form will also add the app to every course in their Canvas instance. If you're an admin and would like to require teachers to add the app to a specific course before it appears, change the property <lticm:property name="default">enabled</lticm:property> to this: <lticm:property name="default">disabled</lticm:property>.

Step 4

Once you add the app, a teacher from the school can go to their Canvas course and launch it in an i-frame. They'll do this by selecting your app from the Course sidebar.
