Once you have set up the Course Link, you will need to create individual web links for each lesson in your SI Cloud course, which will allow grades to transfer between SI Cloud and Blackboard Ultra.
If you need help locating your LTI credentials in Cloud, please see How to find the LTI Credentials for your course.
We recommend putting "Science Interactive" in the title as well as the lesson name, i.e., "Getting Started (Science Interactive)"
The default for this field is "Hidden from students," so it is critical that you do not skip this step, as these lesson links will be how students access each SI Cloud lesson, enabling their grades to transfer back to Blackboard Ultra
This URL can also be found in SI Cloud under "Tool Provider URL" in the LTI Credentials.
- Copy the "Tool Provider Key" field in Cloud, then paste it into the "Key" field in Blackboard Ultra.
- Copy the "Tool Provider Secret" field in Cloud, then paste it into the "Security Token" field in Blackboard Ultra.
See How to find the LTI Credentials for your course to locate these fields
If the Auto-fill selections are available as shown above, feel free to use them, so long as they match what is shown in SI Cloud.
8. Copy the Lesson Hook from SI Cloud and paste it into the "Custom Parameters" field in Blackboard Ultra
The lesson hook can be found under the lesson's name in SI Cloud and looks like this: lesson_hook=hol-mlesson-xxxxxxx.
You can only use ONE lesson hook per web link, so do not put multiple lesson hooks into this field. You will create additional web links for the remainder of the lessons after you finish this one.
11. Set the points and all other settings for this lesson in your Blackboard Ultra gradebook as desired
The weights you set in Blackboard Ultra do not have to match the weights set in SI Cloud.
You will be returned to the Blackboard Ultra Content page.
Congratulations! Once all the lesson links have been added into Blackboard Ultra, your course is fully integrated.
Students can now enroll in SI Cloud and complete SI Cloud lessons simply by selecting the links you've created in Blackboard Ultra. Grades will also transfer automatically into your Blackboard Ultra gradebook.
Once you have added all of the lesson hooks to your course, selecting a lesson link in your LMS will take you to your course dashboard, not to the individual lesson like it does for students. Don't worry, though, this means that everything was set up correctly!
