Error: Invalid signature

Issue 1: An incorrect LTI URL has been used.

Fix:  Please check the LTI URL you have added for this activity, it should look exactly like the one below where xxxxx will be the unique number for  your activity.  If you are adding a LabSim, you will find a table of LTI URLs on your homepage by clicking on the link "LTI details for all resources". Make sure that you have copied the correct URL from the table and haven't obtained the URL from somewhere else. If you are adding a Smart Worksheet or LabSim Assessment, your LTI URL will have been emailed to you.
