Schoology Integration

World Book’s LTI integration with Schoology provides a simple way for students and teachers to access World Book content from within Schoology. When Schoology users install the World Book Online app, they will be able to authenticate through single-sign-on (SSO), eliminating the need to enter a username and password. This also automatically logs a user in to a personal My World Book Account so they can utilize features such as My Research and saving Timelines.

World Book’s LTI integration also reduces steps involved in incorporating World Book content into a Schoology course. Teachers can use the “deep linking” feature to add article links to Schoology courses. This feature is currently available for Kids, Student, and Advanced. Instructions on how to do this are described in the “deep linking” section that follows.
