D2L: LTI Integration (for Administrators)

This integration allows instructors and students to access the course via their D2L course without new login information. It also creates a sync that allows grades to be synced from Acrobatiq to D2L.

The following steps explain how to configure the D2L environment so that it can launch into Acrobatiq courseware via LTI.

Step 1: Tool Settings

  1. Click External Learning Tools.

  3. Title: Name of course

  4. URL: Link for the course 

  5. Key/Secret: Tool consumer key/secret

  6. Visibility: Allow users to view this link

  7. Custom Parameters: None

  8. Security Settings: Use tool provider security settings

  9. Click Save and Close.


Step 3: LTI Launch

For this step, you will need to initiate an LTI launch to the Acrobatiq platform via the D2L course as an instructor (not administrator). This step creates the appropriate connection between the D2L section and the Acrobatiq section.
In this step, instructors are authorizing Acrobatiq to add scores on their behalf to the course gradebook. The instructor must approve this step. Acrobatiq is only permitted to send scores in that partic­­­­­ular instructor’s gradebook.
Instructors need to complete this step for each section of the course. All instructors will need to launch the course from within D2L to create their sections.

Step 4: Gradebook Integration

To select which graded items sync with the D2L Gradebook, use the Acrobatiq Gradebook Sync tool.
