Brightspace/D2L - How to add Labster simulations to your course (LTI 1.3)


  • The LMS Admin has to register the Labster tool prior to you adding the simulations to your course.

Note: if you do not have Labster installed as an external tool, please ask your LMS administrator to contact your Labster Customer Success Manager!
