LTI's (Learning Tools Interoperability) in Canvas

Tags Canvas LTI


What is an LTI?

An LTI connects Canvas to third party tools (i.e. Pearson or Course Evaluations) to provide seamless access to students and faculty. There are typically two ways that Bellevue College integrates LTI's: Globally or at the Course Level. If an LTI is integrated globally, all courses at Bellevue College have the ability to use it. If the LTI was integrated at the Course Level, only those specific courses will have access to the LTI. Once an LTI has been integrated, there are two main ways to activate it within a course: in the Course Navigation, or by adding an External Tool within Modules. They way the LTI is activated in a course depends on how the third party has set it up.

The table below lists the global LTI's at Bellevue College. If there is an LTI that you wish to add to your course that is not listed below, you will need to submit a ticket for assistance.

How can I activate a global LTI in my course?

There are two primary ways to activate the LTI's listed on this page. In the table, the column marked "Access" will state which way you can activate the LTI in your course.


  1. Open your course

  3. Click on Navigation at the top
  4. Click and drag your choice to the top
  5. Scroll to the bottom and click Save

  5. Scroll down and click on the LTI that you would like to use
    1. Note that there are two scroll bars, use the smaller one
  6. Scroll down and fill in the remaining information as needed.
    1. Tip: If an LTI doesn't load in Canvas, try selecting "Load in a new tab"
