- Sharing resources with a group of educators
- Getting set up in your learning management system
If your school or organization uses a Learning Management System (LMS), such as Blackboard, Moodle Canvas, OpenEdx, or Schoology, there is a way for you to integrate WISELearn Resources into your system. The WISELearn Resources Learning Tool Integration 1.1 (LTI 1.1) is presented seamlessly within your LMS so you can search for and access resources from your Hub, Group, or Private folders on WISELearn Resources.
If you are a member of a hub or group with LTI access, your hub or group admin can provide you with the login details (key and secret) needed to set up your LTI connection. If you need an individual or group LTI account, contact us:
Complete the LTI 1.1 Integration for Microsites form.
After you've completed the LTI integration form, wait for ISKME to email your key and secret. This is usually sent within 24 hours.
Sharing resources with a group of educators
If you would like to use WISELearn Resources to share content with multiple educators who are working together on a course or curriculum, there is no need for every member of the group to request their own key and secret. The key and secret will be sent to the Group Administrator. If someone other than the Group Admin completed the form, the Group Admin must contact firstname.lastname@example.org to approve the integration request. Each member of the group must have an WISELearn Resources account.
Log in to WISELearn Resources.
Create a group in WISELearn Resources.
Save resources to your group folder(s).
After you receive your key and secret, you can move forward with your integration.
Getting set up in your learning management system
Once you have received your credentials, you can install and begin accessing content from WISELearn Resources in your learning management system.
Most course designers and instructors can configure LTI tools independently for each course for which they are a designer or instructor. An LMS administrator is generally able to configure an LTI tool for the entire system.
Below, you'll find details for installing LTI tools in common LMSs.
