The information, documentation, and step-by-step instructions for integrating RedShelf into your Blackboard system!
Step One - LTI Tool Integration
- LAUNCH URL:
** make sure there are no spaces before and after each of these credentials **
- BLACKBOARD COURSE ID:
- HOST NAME:
Your representative will complete the LTI tool integration on RedShelf's side and direct you to test the RedShelf link. The following screen confirms successful setup:
If you see any error, please reach out to your representative for assistance troubleshooting.
Step Two: Course Roster Integration
After you have completed the LTI tool integration, begin setting up course roster integration. Note that the LTI tool integration must be completed prior to this roster integration. Course roster integration will allow our system to sync with your institution's RedShelf Inclusive Access courses each night. This sync will note all changes to course rosters every day (including opt outs, opt ins, adds, and drops).
Let your representative know you've completed the roster setup on your end - your representative will then wrap up the integration on RedShelf's end, thereby building a bridge between your system and ours. Please add an example student into the test course that you created for the LTI integration. Your representative will test the course roster integration by picking up the roster to pull that student into the test course generated. Your representative will update you once the roster has pulled and setup is complete!
If you have any questions regarding setup between the two integrations, reach out to your representative for assistance - the more information you include for us, the easier and more quickly we'll be able to help.
