Admin Guide: Configuration for Brightspace (D2L)

This article explains how to install and configure the HealthSmart LTI v.1.3 integration with the Brightspace (D2L) Learning Management System (LMS).

The following configuration guidelines are intended to be used by district IT. Please schedule a 10-minute call with us to confirm the integration setup and initiate the data sync. To schedule the setup call, please contact support@etr.org or select an appointment on our online schedular.
