How to add a LearnSci Homepage on Blackboard

1. Start by going to the course page where you wish to add the LearnSci Homepage. It is important that any staff accessing the homepage on this course have a teaching role so that they are automatically assigned the correct role on the Learning Science platform.

2. Turn Edit Mode on



3. From the Build Content tab, select Web Link



4. Give it a name (e.g. LearnSci Labsims for Chemistry, LearnSci Labsims for Chemistry or LearnSci Smart Worksheet Collection) and enter the LTI URL provided to you for your homepage.



5. Tick the box "This link is to a Tool Provider". This brings up a new set of options depending on how Learning Science has been configured by your IT / TEL team. What do I do if I don't see this tick box?

6. If you see a Key, a Secret, and a Custom Parameters field, enter the Key and Secret we provided to you into their respective fields and leave the Custom Parameters field blank. If these fields aren't present, move on to the next step

7. Set Enable Evaluation to No



8. If you wish, you can add a description. (Optional)



9. Select Yes to Open in New Window



10. Set the rest of the options under Standard Options according to your requirements

11. Select Submit 

12. From your course page, find and select the LearnSci Homepage you just added to check that it works.
