Integrate MATLAB Grader with Canvas (Instructure) — LTI 1.3

LMS Administrators: Add MATLAB Grader to Canvas Apps

To add MATLAB® Grader™ to Canvas® Apps, follow the steps in this section.

Step 1. Sign in to Canvas as an LMS Administrator

Sign in to your university’s LMS instance of Canvas as a user with administrator privileges, specifically the ability to create developer keys and configure LTI apps. The URL of the login page may look like this example: https://mathworks.instructure.com/.

Step 2. Go to Developer Keys in Canvas

Go to the Developer Keys page. The URL of this page may look like this example: https://mathworks.instructure.com/accounts/1/developer_keys.

Step 3. Create a New LTI Key for MATLAB Grader

Following the Canvas instructions in How do I configure an LTI key for an account?, create a new developer key of type “LTI Key” for MATLAB Grader.

  1. In the section Open Account, the account name to select is MathWorks.

  2. Provide the following values when prompted:

  3. Expand Additional Settings and provide the following value when prompted:

    Field NameField Value
    Domainhttps://learningtool.mathworks.com

Step 4. Enable LTI Advantage Services

On the Developer Key configuration page, expand the section for LTI Advantage Service and set only the following services as shown:

LTI Advantage Services selection screen with the required services selected.

Services selected:

  • Can create and view assignment data in the gradebook associated with the tool.

  • Can view submission data for assignments associated with the tool.

  • Can create and update submission results for assignments associated with the tool.

  • Can update public jwk for LTI services.

Step 5. Create a Placement Assignment Selection

Under Placements, from the drop down menu, select Assignment Selection. Expand the new section for Assignment Selection and provide the following values:

Field NameField Value
Target Link URIhttps://learningtool.mathworks.com/v1p3/launch
Select Message TypeSelect LtiResourceLinkRequest.

If any other placements exist for Account Navigation or Link Selection, delete them from the list of placements.

Step 6. Save and Enable the Developer Key

  1. On the Developer Key configuration page, click Save and return to the list of developer keys.

  2. On the list of developer keys, locate the key that you just created, and toggle the State of the key from OFF to ON.

  3. Confirm your selection to enable the developer key for MATLAB Grader.

Step 7. Identify the Client ID for MATLAB Grader

In the list of developer keys, identify the newly created key for MATLAB Grader, and copy the numeric client ID value (located under Details). You need this client ID in the following steps.

Step 8. Generate a Deployment ID for MATLAB Grader

  1. In Canvas, go to Settings Apps.

  2. Click View App Configurations.

  3. When the list of enabled external apps is displayed, click + App.

  4. Choose Configuration Type “By Client ID” and enter the numeric client ID value that you obtained in the previous step. Click Submit. Confirm that you would like to install the MATLAB Grader LTI 1.3 app by clicking Install when prompted.

  5. When the list of installed apps is displayed again, click the gear icon to the right of MATLAB Grader LTI 1.3, and then choose the option Deployment ID.

  6. Copy the value for Deployment ID for MATLAB Grader LTI 1.3. You need this deployment ID in the following steps.

Step 9. Sign in to MATLAB Grader as an LMS Administrator

Note

When you sign in to MATLAB Grader, use the MathWorks® Account associated with the LMS administrator. The account holder should also be a license administrator for managing MathWorks licenses and must have been given access to MATLAB Grader by MathWorks Customer Support or by another license administrator at your university.

Sign in at the URL https://grader.mathworks.com and then click LMS Integration. Alternatively, you can access the page directly at https://grader.mathworks.com/lti_credentials.

Step 10. Register the LMS Information In MATLAB Grader

On the LMS Integration page:

  1. Under Step 1, choose LTI version LTI 1.3.

  2. Under Step 3, provide the following values when prompted. These values are for production instances of Canvas. If you are using Canvas in a non production environment, see Configuring LTI Advantage Tools.

    Field NameField Value
