Adding Course Hooks in D2L/Brightspace (New Experience LTI 1.1)

Updated on

D2L/ Brightspace instructors can integrate the Science Interactive platform by using LTI credentials found in SI Cloud. If you need help locating the LTI credentials, please follow the steps in How do I find the LTI hooks for my course?

This set of instructions helps you add the external learning tool and link it in the content section of your D2L/Brightspace course.

If your D2L/Brightspace interface does not match the images below, you may be using a different version of their LTI tool. Check out the instructions for the Classic Experience here.

1. In the content section of your D2L/Brightspace course, select "Add Existing"

7. Find and copy the "Tool Provider Key" and "Tool Provider Secret" in SI Cloud

8. Paste the Tool Provider Key and Tool Provider Secret into the "Key" and "Secret" fields, respectively

9. Select "Add custom parameters." Then, in the "Save Changes" pop-up, select "Save"

10. Copy the course hook information from SI Cloud into "Custom Parameters" in D2L

Note: Hooks are displayed in SI Cloud as one unit, like this: course_hook=hol-mcourse-********

In D2L, the hooks need to be separated into two parts. In order to do this, place "course_hook" into the name section, then place everything after the "=" sign in the value section (ex: hol-mcourse-********). Do not put the "=" sign anywhere.

10.1. Find the Master Course Hook code string in your Cloud course settings page

In the next step, "course_hook" (yellow) and the unique course identifier (blue) will be copied into fields in D2L.
