With the following steps, the Sakai Administrator will create a placement for Course Materials.

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 “FirstDay Course Materials” to keep it separate and identifiable from your current “Course Materials” link. The current link should not be removed until current term (ex. Summer) 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.
