Schoology recommends setting up your tool providers at the district level. District-level installation of an LTI tool is the most effective way to distribute LTI content across a school, district, college, or university. This method also ensures that you have full control over the integration and its launch credentials.
Follow these steps to set up EquatIO for LMS in Schoology at the institution-level:
1. Click System Settings on the left menu of your System Admin home page
2. Click Integration (directly below System Settings) in the left navigation menu.
3. Select External Tools tab at the top of the page
4. Click Add External Tool Provider.
5. Fill out the necessary information in the pop-up window as shown:
Consumer Key: This will be your Product Code found in your purchase email
Shared Secret: Found in your purchase email
Privacy: Only send Email/Username of user who launches the tool
