Integrate Microsoft Teams classes and meetings LTI apps within Desire2Learn Brightspace LMS
This guide provides the IT admin steps for registering both Teams Classes and Teams Meetings LTI apps for the Desire2Learn (D2L) Brightspace LMS.
For details on managing all LTI apps for any LMS, see Manage Microsoft LMS Gateway for any LMS.
The basic steps to integrate Teams LTI apps and Brightspace are:
- Prerequisites before integration.
- Register Microsoft LTI for use in Brightspace.
- Deploy the Microsoft LTI apps to Brightspace.
- Add Teams LTI app links to educators' Brightspace.
Prerequisites before integration
For the integration between D2L Brightspace and Teams to function correctly, Brightspace and Teams must be set up to communicate with one another.
For Teams Classes to work, you need to have Brightspace Course Connector installed and configured correctly. Follow these steps to install the connector on your Brightspace account.
Select Class Team for Integration type when setting up the connector to ensure compatibility with Teams LTI tools.
Teams Meetings will work without the course connector. However, certain features such as Add entire class won't be available. We recommend installing Brightspace Course Connector for the Teams Meetings LTI app.
