Configure the D2L Integration


The Desire2Learn (D2L) integration provides a simple way for educators to
upload media, access their existing Ensemble Video media libraries, and publish single videos and video playlists into their course, without ever leaving the D2L interface.

Start by logging into D2L as an Administrator. Go to Settings and choose Remote Plugins.


In the Manage Remote Plugins interface, click New Remote Plugin. 


This will open up the area to input the information for the Ensemble Video Plugin.


From the Plugin Type drop-down list, select from either Insert Stuff (CIM) or Quicklink (CIM).

Note: If CIM is not available, use "Config Variable Browser" to find and turn on the "d2l.Tools.Lti.ContentItemMessaging.IsEnabled" setting.

Enter the values from the Ensemble Video Institutional LTI Configurations form as explained below. Then, make sure to name the plugin something descriptive like Ensemble Video Chooser.

The Launch Point URL, as well as the LTI Key and LTI Secret can be found on the LTI Configuration setup for D2L on Ensemble Video or can be created if it does not exist yet.


Add all organizations (on D2L) that you would like to have access to the plugin under Make available to: by clicking Add Org Units. 


You can also link to a Icon if preferred. When finished, click Save.

Next, go to Settings and click on External Learning Tools, then Edit Ensemble Video launch link. Here, scroll down to the security settings, select Use Link Security Settings, and make sure that all items that are checked below are checked.


You can preview the username that will be sent by the LTI request by editing the launch link, and using the dropdown menu to select “View Link Request”.


The est_d2l_username value is the username that will be passed to Ensemble Video. This username must match a username for the IDP specified in the LTI configuration for your Ensemble Video Institution.
