Note: LTI 1.3 is currently in Beta. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating in the beta.
This document contains the steps that a Canvas administrator will need to perform to configure LTI 1.3 when using zyBooks. This must be performed by the Canvas administrator since an instructor does not have the required privileges!
Creating the LTI 1.3 Tool
On the left hand side, click on “Admin”
Next, click on “Developer Keys” towards the bottom of the left-hand side of the page
Create a new LTI key by clicking the green “Developer Key” button in the upper right and select “LTI Key”.
In the popup, give the tool a name and optionally provide an owner email. Fill in the following fields and click the green save button on the lower right corner.
Key Name: You may set this to “zyBooks LTI 1.3” or whatever name you wish this key to be called.
Redirect URI: https://lti1-3.zybooks.com/v1/lti1p3/provider
Under the method heading, click the drop-down box and select “Enter URL”.
The new LTI 1.3 tool will be automatically configured with the settings required for zyBooks. In the list of keys, ensure that the state of the new key is set to “ON” as shown below. To have your new LTI 1.3 tool work with zyBooks, record the client id of the LTI tool (in the screenshot below, this is 10000000001583). Send this information to zyBooks support and your institution will have LTI 1.3 access to zyBooks.
Providing the LTI 1.3 Tool to Instructors
Now that the LTI 1.3 tool is configured, you may provide the client id to instructors and have them follow the steps below to add this tool to their course.
In the canvas course, select “Settings” on the bottom left.
Next, select the “Apps” tab towards the top of the screen.
Click “View App Configurations”.
Click the green “+ App” button.
Under “Configuration Type”, select “By Client ID” and enter the client id provided by the canvas administrator. Then click the green “Submit” button.
Finally, click “Install” to install the tool.
The tool will be installed in your course. When creating a new LTI assignment, you may select the tool by name exactly the same as in previous versions of LTI.
