Inclusive Access: LTI Set Up | Populi 1.3

What is LTI?

 

LTI is an abbreviation for Learning Tools Interoperability, which is a standard protocol developed by the IMS Global Learning Consortium. It allows services like Logos to integrate with your Learning Management System (LMS) as single-sign-on tools.

 

The resulting experience for instructors and students is simple:

  1. Sign into your LMS.
  2. Navigate to your course.
  3. Click on the Logos LTI link.
  4. Access essential tools and textbooks in the Logos Web App.

 

Clicking on a Logos LTI link will enable instructors to associate the correct textbooks with their course and allow students to create or sign in to an existing Logos account and access their course materials.  No additional work is required from the instructor or student.

 

LTI Tool Configuration

Before instructors can use a Logos LTI link for their course, it must be configured globally for your LMS by an administrator.  The steps below will help guide you through this process.  

 

Step 1: Setting up the LTI Tool

 

Next, we need to set up the LTI Tool in Populi.

  • Click your profile image, then Account & Settings
  • Click Account Settings > Integrations > Add integration
  • Integration Type: External LTI tool
  • LTI Version: 1.3 (LTI Advantage)
  • Available Tools: New Custom Tool
  • Dynamic Registration: This link will be created and provided by your Sale Engineer 
  • Launch tool in a new tab: TRUE
  • Click Register Tool

 

The following info will be automatically generated from the dynamic registration link.

  • Name: Logos Bible Software by Faithlife
  • Description: Link to course textbooks in the Logos web app
  • Launch URL: https://lti.faithlife.com/v1/message
  • Authentication request URL: https://lti.faithlife.com/v1/login
  • Public keyset URL: https://lti.faithlife.com/v1/jwks
  • ***Deep linking URL: https://lti.faithlife.com/v1/message
  • Privacy: Public
  • Launch tool in a new tab: TRUE

***Please note: the Deep linking URL needs to be manually added after the dynamic registration link is configured.

At this point, you will need to contact your Sales Engineer to activate the tool. Once activated you can move on to the next step.

 

Step 2: Add the LTI Logos Link to a Course

 

At this point, the LTI connection has been configured and instructors can add the Logos link to their course. A step-by-step guide on how to do this in Populi can be found here: https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/16539912709389
