Set up MasteryConnect Canvas Global Navigation using LTI

This is an additional LTI Configuration so DO NOT  remove the current MasteryConnect App with LTI that you have added for the Assignment External Tool.  In order for this is work smoothly, please be sure the Canvas user’s email is  associated with an MC user.  You can generate shared and secret keys to a school or district.


How to Configure LTI for Canvas (Find the Key and Secret in MasteryConnect)

  1. In MasteryConnect, click Admin, hover over Manage, and then select LTI Settings.

2. On this page, you will see the name of your district and of individual schools. You can generate an LTI Key and Secret for the entire district, or for specific schools within your district. To do this, click Generate to the right of the district (or schools) for which you want to set up LTI. These are the two pieces of information that you’ll need before going to Canvas.

Note: You can Revoke the key and secret for your district or school at any time. Please be aware that this action is permanent, and that everything associated with the revoked key and secret will no longer be usable.
