Canvas: How to add a Learning Science Homepage


Before you start...
  1. You will need the LTI URL(s) for your LearnSci homepage(s) provided by Learning Science.
  2. The LTI URL should have the following format: https:// resources.learnsci.co.uk/enrol/lti/tool.php?id=xxxxx (where xxxxx is a set of numbers unique to your homepage).

1. Start by going to the course page where you wish to add your LabSim Homepage.

2. You can add the LabSim Homepage to an existing module or create a new module to add it to. To add a new module, select + Module
By default, the newly created module will be hidden from students.



3. In the newly created module or an existing one, select  +.



4. Then, select External tool from the dropdown menu.



5. Select “Learning Science” from the list of available tools. If you have more than one Learning Science external tool listed, select the most appropriate one. For example, if you are adding a Bioscience Homepage, select the Learning Science Bioscience tool.

Note that the Learning Science tool(s) may have been named differently by your institution.



6. Ensuring that the appropriate Learning Science tool is selected, enter the LTI URL for your LabSim Homepage. If there is already a URL in the field, delete this and enter your LabSim Homepage LTI URL.



7. Enter a name for the LabSim Homepage and tick the box "Load in a new tab".

8. Add item and return to the course module to verify that the LabSim Homepage link you just added is working correctly.
