Adding Course Hooks in D2L/Brightspace

Updated Aug 13, 2020

D2L/ Brightspace instructors can integrate the HOL Platform using LTI credentials from HOL Cloud. If you need help locating the LTI credentials please follow the steps in How do I find the LTI hooks for my course? 

This set of instructions helps you add the external learning tool and link it in the content section of your D2L/Brightspace course.

2. Select "External Learning Tools" from the drop-down.

7. Select "Add custom parameters." A Save Changes window will pop up, select "Save."

Please read Which hook is best? to help you decide which course hook you should use in your course.

8. Insert the course hook information as shown.

Note: the hooks are displayed in HOL as "course_hook=hol-course-********." When performing this step, "course_hook" is placed in the name section. Everything after the "=" in the hook is placed in the value section (hol-course-********).

9. Select all check boxes for the security settings. Select "Save" and "Close."

This creates a link between D2L and HOL Cloud. You can now add individual lesson links by following the steps in Adding Lesson Hooks in D2L/Brightspace.

This course link needs to remain in the course but can be hidden from students as they do not need to use it. The Course hook link does not need to be visible to students. Students will access the HOL Cloud through the lesson links.
