Schoology Integration Manual

Before You Start

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:​​

Setting Up LTI External Tool Providers in Schoology

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.


  1. Select your Course from the Courses dropdown

  2. Click Course Options below the course profile photo

  3. Select External Tool Providers

  • Configuration Type: Manual

  • Match By: URL

You are finished adding the tool provider. To add Revision Assistant prompts to your course, please see [Assigning a Revision Assistant Prompt in Schoology].
