These directions are to use Revision Assistant within Schoology LMS. You must sign-in to your Schoology account each time before adding and/or using Revision Assistant.
Depending on your account, you will probably have to add Revision Assistant as a Tool Provider before adding it as an External Tool.
Revision Assistant functions as an “External Tool” within Schoology. This means that you will have to add Revision Assistant as an External Tool Provider from the course page before you can make and assign prompts. You can add an External Tool Provider by following the Schoology directions below:
If you’re familiar with adding External Tool Providers in Schoology then all the important stuff is listed below:
Tool Name—Revision Assistant
Consumer Key— to be shared by your institution
Shared Secret— to be shared by your institution
Privacy— “Send Name and Email / Username of user who launches the tool”.
Custom Parameters—leave blank
To set up External Tools in Schoology, first add the tool provider. The Schoology System Admin can install the tool provider at the course or the district level. However, if you have a free account or if your system admin does not plan to configure the External Tool at the system level, the Course Admin will need to install the LTI Integration at the course level.
If your System Admin has not configured the External Tool at the System Level, follow these steps first.
Select your Course from the Courses dropdown
Click Course Options below the course profile photo
Select External Tool Providers
Click Add External Tool Provider
