Managing Link Placements

After you have set VitalSource up as an LTI 1.3 Tool, you can place LTI links into courses. Depending on the VitalSource tool you are using, there are different options for doing this.

Manage Placements 

This is the best option if you are using VitalSource Launch, or if you will be placing the same link in every course. This will make an LTI link to VitalSource available in Course Tools.

  1. Go to the System Admin panel.
  2. Click on LTI Tool Providers and find the Tool/Provider for VitalSource (bc.vitalsource.com).
  3. Click the arrow next to the provider domain and click Manage Placements.
  4. Click Create Placement and enter the following:
    • Label: Enter what you would like to have appear in the course, for example, VitalSource Course Materials
    • Handle: vitalsource
    • Availability: Yes
    • Type: 
      • Course tool, student -Select this option if you would like to add the link to the course menu (classic) or would like the tool to be available to students in the books & tools menu (ultra)
