Part 3: Register a new tool in Blackboard (LTI 1.3)

Updated on

Registering a tool in Blackboard will allow you to link lessons, enable grade transfer, and use other features.

This will only need to be performed once for each course SKU, but does require an LTI Admin.

The Client ID and Deployment ID are both unique to a given course SKU.
