When setting up an LTI tool in Canvas, the syntax of the Configuration URL can be edited to select one of the following options.

If you have setup a MEETS instance using the MEETS Admin Panel, your Configuration URL will already include the following settings, according to the preferences which you selected in the MEETS Admin Panel.

Automatic Propagation

Canvas offers two methods for placing LTI tools on the course page using the Configuration URL. You can choose your preferred method by changing the syntax of the Configuration URL.

The default Configuration URL will propagate the MEETS link to appear as an active link on every course page.

To not have the Configuration URL automatically propagate the MEETS link in every course page, please add “&disabled” as a suffix to the Configuration URL. This will have the MEETS link only appear in the Course Navigation. You can then manually add MEETS to the appropriate courses.

e.g. if the configuration URL is:


then add “&disabled” making it: 


Renaming the LTI tool

Canvas also allows to name the LTI tool by editing the Configuration URL.

By default the Configuration URL will be set to have the LTI Tool appear as "MEETS" on the course page. If you would like a name other than MEETS to appear in your course, then change the word MEETS in the configuration URL to the word of your choice.

e.g. you wish to have the word Virtual Class show up, then the URL would be:
