New course section requests can be put through after your institution Facilitator has created the LTI Course Offering for the coming term. A course section that is delivered lTI means that the course content will be engaged with by your students in your institution's LMS (Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, etc). Students will enroll in the class through your LMS, not the Pathways Portal. To get things set up, you will be required to work with your local LMS administrator (step 3 below).
Putting through a New Course Section Request for LTI Delivery
In your Pathways account, click on the Request a new course button.
Select the Context and Course offering from the drop down menus and enter the name of the section. Note: If there is no offering listed for the appropriate term in the Course offering drop down, then it means your Facilitator has yet to create the offering. Select the primary instructor for the section. Enter the enrollment capacity, the class start and end dates, and indicate the method by which the summative assessment(s) will be administered. When done, click the Create section button at the bottom.
Your Pathways homepage will now indicate that you have a submitted course section request that has a status of New.
After a short while, the new course section will update to active.
If your institution uses Canvas as its LMS, click the Export content for Canvas button. For other LMSs (Blackboard, Moodle, etc), use the Export content as Common Cartridge button. You will then import the file into your LMS class; please work with your local LMS administrators to do this as the process varies and they will have greater knowledge of doing such than we do.
Beneath the course information, you will see an 8-digit Course code. This code may be asked for in your LMS to select the content that you want to bring in to your LMS class. Note: If you see the term Enroll code beside your course section under Your active courses, it means your facilitator has set up the offering incorrectly for LTI.
