Version: Kora Courses, November 2023, or later

Our Integrations team can assist you with adding the Digication LTI for Kora integration to your LMS.  Read more about LMS Integration for Kora.

Digication will provide the unique LTI application information needed to create your Digication integration in your LMS. If you need to obtain this information, contact Digication Support at support@digication.com

Once you have the LTI application information, follow the steps below to configure the integration in your Brightspace environment.

Step 1: Create the external tool
