How can I enable signing into OpenLearning from Blackboard via LTI?

Institutions can set up LTI, to enable students to sign into OpenLearning using their Blackboard credentials. To do this, we recommend following the steps below, but also notifying us on so we can help you through the process.


Step 1

Go to your OpenLearning portal's Institution Settings > Integrations

Step 2

Type in your OpenLearning password and click Request Credentials

Step 3

You will get a Launch URL, Key and Secret. Keep these handy because you'll need them shortly (don't refresh this page)

Step 4

First you need to set up OpenLearning as an LTI provider within Blackboard. If you have done this already, you can skip to Step 5.


Go into your admin settings in Blackboard and set up OpenLearning as an LTI provider (you can follow the steps here).

During this set up, you can use the following settings:

  • The Provider Domain:
  • Don't exclude
  • No secondary hostnames
  • For “Tool providers can offer configuration for the entire site” - select Yes for the whole site
  • Add the Key and Secret you received in Step 3
  • Enable Evaluation: No

Step 5

To add an LTI link to your course in Blackboard, click on Build Content, then select Web Link

Step 6

For the URL, put in the Launch URL you received in Step 3. Enable Evaluation: No
