Our Integrations team can assist you with adding the Digication integration to your LMS.
The Digication integration is an LTI application, so we will provide you with a unique consumer key and shared secret so you can add the LTI link to your LMS. If you have a sandbox environment for your LMS, we will test in the sandbox first, and then add the integration to your production environment.
First, we will need the URLs for your LMS sandbox, if you have one, and your production LMS. Please contact email@example.com with this information.
Once we have your URLs, we will generate a unique consumer key and shared secret for your integration. You can then follow your LMS's instructions for configuring an LTI or external learning tool. In addition to your key and secret, you will need the Tool URL for your LMS (click the LMS name to jump to the section below):
If you don’t see your LMS listed here, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with the tool URL for your integration.
If you need to connect Digication to Blackboard, please see the following article: Installing and Configuring Digication as a Blackboard Building Block
Once the Digication link is added, a user with Instructor access to a course in must click through the link to connect the course to Digication. If a student clicks the link before an instructor has made the initial connection, they will receive an error that says "Course Has Not Been Configured."
