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.

Open LTI Settings

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

Generate LTI Key

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.
