How to setup eDynamic Learning in Canvas as an Admin
After you have imported a course package (see our guide Canvas - Importing eDynamic Courses), you will need to either set the LTI credentials up at the account level, or on a per course basis. You will find a copy of your LTI credentials on your Client Account
For instructions on setting the LTI credentials at the account level, please see this guide by Canvas:
How do I configure and LTI key for an account
Note: if you have already added the LTI credentials at the account level, you will still be notified that there were issues upon import of a course. These issues will resolve themselves as the import process doesn't see the external tools; it's only after the course is in that the tools take effect.
Potential Issue: In our Canvas course packages, prior to our 5.0+ versions, there is a fake LTI setup. If you are setting the credentials at the account level, you will need to remove this course-level set of credentials to avoid the two fighting and the LTI failing. We have removed this fake set of credentials from the 5.0+ packages.
For instructions on setting the LTI credentials at the course level, please follow these steps.
Note: As indicated above, in our Canvas course packages below version 5.0 there is a fake set of credentials already built in. If you are using a package below v.5.0 you can skip step 3 below and simply edit the existing fake credentials (lti.edynamiclearning.com)
- Inside your new course, click on the Settings option in the left navigation bar
- Click on View App Configurations
- Click on + App
- You will be taken into the app settings.
Configuration Type - leave as Manual Entry
Name - Provide a name for the tool. Most likely, you'll name it eDynamic Learning for easy reference
Consumer Key/Shared Secret - You will find these listed on your Client Account
Launch URL - Leave this blank (and ignore that Canvas highlights it in red)
Domain - enter lti.edynamiclearning.com
Privacy - choose Name Only
Custom Fields/Description - Can be left blank, though you are welcome to add any information you wish.
- That's it. If you navigate into the course the content should now load.
