LTI Links

This report displays Resource Links to all of your Event or Course content which is hosted by an LTI Provider.

You can manage the links to the content for one of these external systems here. The nature of what can be controlled in this screen is dependent upon the capabilities that have been enabled between Leo and the Provider's system.

Some LTI Providers require you to copy the links from their system and paste them into Leo. Other Providers allow you to first create the link object in Leo, and then click it to go connect it to your content of choice in the Provider's system. As we integrate with each Provider, we take this into account and have modified the interface appropriately to allow you to quickly set up LTI links.

For detailed information on managing LTI materials please refer to the article on Materials: LTI Links
