The ATLAS LTI Tool is currently incompatible with Safari. We recommend using the LTI with Chrome or Firefox while we work to fix this. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The LTI Tool allows instructors to embed ATLAS Cases they have curated to Groups directly in to Canvas. When students launch the LTI links, they'll be able to view the Case the instructor has selected. There is no need to add students to the ATLAS platform beforehand.
Setting up Course Groups in ATLAS
Before instructors will be able to use the LTI Tool, they will need to create one or more ATLAS Groups where they curate Cases they'd like to add to their Canvas Courses. If you need more information about setting up Groups, please see our Group Leader Help Articles
Installing the ATLAS LTI in Canvas
It is possible to install the ATLAS LTI Tool for an entire Organization within Canvas, so individual instructors do not have to install the LTI Tool in each and every course. If you would like to do this, but aren't sure how to do this yourself, reach out to your departmental instructional technology support staff. If you would like instructors to be able to add the LTI Tool to their courses independently, they can follow the instructions below.
Step 1: Get Your Information In Order. You'll need the following items
- Key/Secret pair obtained from your ATLAS Account Representative
- Canvas Config URL: https://www.eduappcenter.com/configurations/7jqj2korp07f9re5.xml
Step 2: Configuring the App in Canvas
Click "View App Configurations"
Click the big blue +App button
Select “By URL” from the Configuration Type Dropdown
- Enter a Name, and the Key and Secret
- Paste the Canvas Config URL input box and click Submit

Safari Login Issue
The Problem: I am using Safari and I can’t seem to login to the LTI Tool no matter what I do! I’ve even tried changing my password via reset password from email, and it still doesn’t work.
Check your cookie settings, and make sure you are allowing third party cookies. If you are strict about your cookie settings, you may need to whitelist atlas.nbpts.org
Close out of the LTI Tool
Open the Homepage in a new tab
Launch the LTI tool again
Safari does a lot to protect your privacy, and ensure third parties aren’t tracking you without your consent. Because of this, Safari won’t allow third parties to set cookie information, if it looks like you haven’t visited the site recently. This means we can’t set an SSO cookie if you’ve recently cleared your history, are using Safari for the first time, or are using Safari on a new device. Opening the ATLAS Homepage will fix this problem, because it indicates to Safari that ATLAS is a site you use intentionally.
