This article explains how to use the GoOpen CT LTI 1.3 tool to add GoOpen CT content to Canvas courses. We will call this the GoOpen CT LTI tool in this article.
Accessing My Collections, My Items, and My Groups
Here are preview images of the content provided by the GoOpen CT LTI tool. When an instructor adds a new activity using the GoOpen CT LTI tool, the instructor will be able to search and browse items in their college’s Collections, their own personal saved Items, and their GoOpen CT Group folders.
This screen shows what browsing My Collections looks like in the GoOpen CT LTI tool.

Add an GoOpen CT LTI Link to Your Canvas Course
Log in to Canvas and navigate to your desired course.
Select Modules from the left side of the screen.
Select the + button for the module where you want to add the link.
Choose External Tool from the Add dropdown menu, and then select GoOpen CT. With this GoOpen CT LTI tool, you can view the content collections. (Your LMS Administrator may name the tool something other than GoOpen CT. Watch for communications from the LMS Administrator to confirm the name.)
If a login screen appears, enter your GoOpen CT credentials. You only have to link your credentials once to the GoOpen CT LTI tool.
After you log in, review the GoOpen CT Collections available for your college. (This sample screen may not reflect your collections.)
After you select the content, you can drag the link on the Module screen to reorder or move it to another module.
Search, Browse, Preview, and Select Content to Add to your Course
After you select your desired course and add the GoOpen CT LTI tool to view your Collections, the steps below apply to Collections, Items, and Groups. Here we will focus on Collections.
In My Collections, you can:
Select the desired collection and browse or filter results by Course tags aligned to CT standards, Subject, and Material type. Here we will select the Mathematics Assessment Project collection.
Search Resources by keywords. (Note that you must be in the My Items tab or the My Group tab to search for content in My Items or My Groups, respectively.)
Preview the content.
Choose Select to embed the content in your course.
Let’s select the Sidewalk Stones activity for our course.
This screen shows the teacher’s view of the Sidewalk Stones activity embedded in a course.
Return to Modules screen and click the circle at the module level or the link level to Publish. (The circle turns green when with a checkmark when published.)
Using the Content Toolbar
When viewing an embedded item in your course, as in the previous screen, a toolbar appears above the content. On the toolbar, you can:
Rate the content with stars
Select Save on the toolbar to save the content to My Items or My Groups
Report the content
