Canvas LTI 1.1 to 1.3 Upgrade

If your LMS currently has the Barnes & Noble Education Course Materials LTI 1.1 tool configured, the steps below will guide you through the process of upgrading the existing 1.1 tool to a 1.3 configuration. Once this process is complete, the existing LTI 1.1 Course Materials link will be replaced by an LTI 1.3 link.

By the end of these steps, you will have generated the following values that will need to be shared with your BNC Implementation contact:

  • A Client ID located in the Developer Key section of Canvas
