    Use these in order to link your LMS system to the SensusAccess LTI Tool.

    Depending on your LMS follow the respective guide. This guide will enable you to embed the SensusAccess form inside any course within your LTI.

  8. Once done you will be able to add the LTI Tool to any course and the SensusAccess form will appear.

    The form will load automatically when clicking on the embedded link inside any course, as in the Demo. It should also be able to list all files within the course and the conversion results will be available either for direct download or sent to the email address of the logged in user.

    If instead of the SensusAccess form you are presented with the SensusAccess LTI home page. Please check again that all the necessary configurations have been done correctly and that you have added the correct API token/Consumer key/shared secret/Application Id etc. inside your SensusAccess LTI account.

Note: Now, after logging into the SensusAccess LTI page the Associated LTI account you have just finished setting up will appear in green. Screenshot showing that the associated lti account is set up correctly
