Adding LTI to your learning platform
To add an LTI tool to your learning platforms, you will need these information:
Tool URL: https://tools.teachermatic.com/lti/launch
Public keyset/JWKS: https://tools.teachermatic.com/lti/jwks
Authentication login URL: https://tools.teachermatic.com/lti/authenticate
Redirect URL: https://tools.teachermatic.com/lti/launch
Custom parameters (organisation ID): organization_id=xxxxxx (when you log in to your TeacherMatic account as an Administrator, you will discover the specific custom parameters for your organisation.)
Afterward, you can access/login to your learning platform and enter all the aforementioned details. You have the option to easily transfer the information (Tool URL, Public Keyset/JWKS, Authentication Login URL, Redirect URL, and Custom Parameters) to the configuration page of your learning platform’s LTI settings by using copy and paste. Please bear in mind that for certain learning platforms, you might be required to log in or have the Administrator role in order to complete this task.
