Admin – one time process
This is a one-time step in which you create a new “External Learning Tool” in Desire2Learn.
The “External Learning Tool” holds the details of your Leganto account.
Three parameters were generated after you created the LTI Integration Profile in Alma.
You will be asked to supply these parameters when creating the “External Learning Tool”.
Add an External Learning Tool
Click on the management wheel icon at the upper right corner => External Learning Tools
Create a New Link
Configure New Link
Title – This name will be seen by whomever creates LTI links in your courses (next step).
We recommend using a name such as “Leganto Reading List” or just “Reading List”
(or another meaningful name).
URL – Take this from the Alma LTI configuration profile, from field ‘Launch URL’
Visibility – Make sure this box is checked.
Signature – Choose ‘Link key/secret’.
Key – Take this from the Alma LTI configuration profile, from field ‘LTI Key’.
Secret – Take this from the Alma LTI configuration profile, from field ‘LTI Secret’.

Click ‘Add Org Units’.
Choose the highest level org unit and check its box. Also choose ‘All descendants’. Click ‘Insert’.
Click “Save and Close”.
Course Code Field Name
The course code is passed using the context_label parameter. You will need to add this as a field in Alma’s “Integration Profile”.
Place the value context_label in the ‘Course Code Field Name’ field.
You Are Done
You are now ready to Create a Leganto Link in a Course.
