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

Here are the steps.

Seeing your app added to every course in your Canvas? And you'd like your teachers to add it individually, before it appears in their sidebars?

Let's troubleshoot.

Step 1

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">disabled</lticm:property>

<lticm:property name="windowTarget">_blank</lticm:property>




This form will make your app open in a new window.

If you'd like the app to open inside Canvas, remove <lticm:property name="windowTarget">_blank</lticm:property> from the file.

Step 4

Once you install the app, teachers will add the app to their course by accessing the Settings option in the Course sidebar. They'll select Navigation and drag the app to the list of course navigation options.
