These instructions describe how to set up FlipIt as an approved LTI Tool for use in your Canvas course, where LTI stands for Learning Tools Interoperability. Note that before you get started, you should be sure to have a Key, Secret, and Tool URL. If you don’t have any of these, you can get them from your Macmillan Learning support agent.

Go to "Settings"

From your course home page in Canvas click on Settings.

Click on the Apps tab and then View App Configurations.

Add New App

Click on Add New App (the button may just say Add App in some versions of Canvas).

Add app info

Fill in the info on the Add App window and click Submit. The Name can be set to any non-blank value, just be sure to include a unique identifier such as course number and/or term. You will need to contact your Macmillan Learning support agent to get the URL, Shared Secret and Consumer Key. The Domain should be: gateway.mnv-tech.com

Click on "Assignments"
