Using LTI to Create a Class
You can create a class in LabSim by adding the custom parameter labsim_class_id followed by the name of your class (if you did not include the labsim_class_id parameter in the External Tool setup).
Note: If you have spaces in your class title, please insert %20 in place of the spaces.
In the end, your URL might look something like this:
Creating a New Class
A teacher can create a new class by clicking on an assignment where the link contains the labsim_class_id parameter (or any link created if you included the labsim_class_id parameter in the External Tool setup).
By doing this, the teacher creates the class, is assigned as the instructor and associates a TestOut product to the class (based on the ISBN contained in the URL).
Note: The first instructor that clicks on a link in this course (with the labsim_class_id) will be placed as the instructor of this course. To replace the instructor of this class, you will have to do so within LabSim.
Linking to an Existing LabSim Class
A teacher can add students to class that was previously created in LabSim by creating a link with the labsim_class_id and adding the EXACT class name after the custom parameter (remembering to add %20 in place of any spaces).
Adding Students to the Class
To add students to a class, students need only to click on an assignment that contains the labsim_class_id parameter in the URL. Once a student clicks on ONE LINK that contains labsim_class_id, they will be added to the indicated class.
Note: The custom parameter labsim_class_id does not need to be in every link to LabSim, just make sure it is in one of the initial links a student clicks on inside of your LMS.
