Information, documentation, and step-by-step instructions for integrating RedShelf into your Blackboard system!
Step One - LTI Tool Integration
To integrate RedShelf with Blackboard, begin by creating the RedShelf LTI tool. Your RedShelf representative will send you a custom document with the following info to complete the setup:
** Make sure there are no spaces before and after each of these credentials. **
Create the RedShelf tool at a system level and generate a test course. Then please send the following information to your RedShelf representative:
BLACKBOARD COURSE ID:
Your rep will complete the LTI tool integration on RedShelf's side and ask you to test the RedShelf link. The following screen confirms successful setup:
If you see any error, please reach out to your representative to troubleshoot.
Step Two: Course Roster Integration
After you have completed the LTI tool integration, set up course roster integration. Note that the LTI tool integration must be complete before roster integration. Course roster integration allows our system to sync with your school's Inclusive Access courses daily. This sync will note all changes to course rosters (including opt outs, opt ins, adds, and drops).
Your RedShelf representative will send you a custom document to complete the course roster integration.
Let your representative know you've completed the roster setup on your end. Your rep will then wrap up the integration on RedShelf's end to build a bridge between your system and ours. Please add an example student into the test course that you created for the LTI integration. Your rep will test the course roster integration by picking up the roster to pull that student into the test course. Your representative will update you once the roster has pulled and setup is complete!
If you have any questions about either integration, reach out to your representative. The more information you include for us, the faster and easier we'll be able to help!
