Add the Course Materials Link to Canvas

With the following steps, the Canvas Administrator will create an LTI external app configuration for Course Materials at the account level (or sub-account, if applicable).

If you had previous courses in First Day This link should be added as soon as possible, as faculty will require access to setup their courseware for upcoming term. You will need to temporarily name it something different such as “Course Materials 2020” to keep it separate and identifiable from your current “Course Materials” link. The current link should not be removed until spring courses have ended.

If you did not have previous courses in First Day You can install the new LTI link with the name “Course Materials” as soon as possible.

Please contact ltisupport@bncollege.com for your key and secret.
