Linking Canvas to the Cyber Range


Instructors: Please reach out to your Canvas administrator to set up LTI in Canvas who will then need to Contact Support to set up LTI in the Cyber Range. Once those preparations have been completed, this step can be done by anyone who is assigned as the instructor of a course in the Cyber Range.

Linking an LTI Integration

Create a Course

If you don't already have a course in the Cyber Range, you should create one now. Please see the article titled Creating a Course for more information. Make sure that you are designated as the instructor of the course before trying to complete the connection.

Log into your Cyber Range Account in Canvas

  1. In your Canvas course, you should see the app you created earlier along the left navigation pane. Click on the app you created. Our sample app was called "Cyber Range-DEV".
  2. If the connection was successful, you should now see a prompt to login using the authentication provider of your choice. Choose the login option that corresponds to your Cyber Range instructor account. Your options for authentication are Google and Azure AD

Choose a Cyber Range Course for Integration

  1. After logging in, you will be presented with a drop-down box that includes all of your Cyber Range courses. Select the course you want to link.
  2. Click "CONFIRM" and wait for the courses to be linked. The "Course" dropdown box contains any courses you are an instructor for.
  3. Once it has finished the linking process, you will see the Cyber Range UI integrated into your Canvas window. The entire Cyber Range UI will be embedded directly into the Canvas UI.

Unlinking an LTI Integration

In the case you accidentally link the wrong course in the Cyber Range to Canvas, please follow these steps below to unlink an LTI integration.

  1. First, begin by navigating to the Course that was linked to Canvas. Select the Manage Course Applications button located to the right of the Users button. The "Manage Course Applications" button is located towards the upper right corner of the Course page, in-between the Users button and Delete button.

  2. Now that you are in the Applications page, you can see the LTI integration that is connecting the course to Canvas. Select the cog wheel icon, where you will have the options to edit or delete your integration. In this case, you will select Delete. The cog wheel is located to the far left of the LTI integration.

  3. Once you have selected the option to delete the integration, you will be met with a confirmation message stating that applications cannot be restored. Check the box stating you understand, then select Delete. A confirmation message stating "I understand that deleted applications cannot be restored".
