3) On Talon, go to the location in your Course Content where you want the tutorial to appear. Select the "Existing Activities" button, then "External Learning Tools". Scroll to the bottom of this window to select "Create New LTI Link". (**Alternatively, if you've previously added or used the LTI link in this course, that module should already be listed in the Existing Activities.**) Enter the title of the module, then paste the LTI Link you previously copied into the URL box. Click "Create and Insert".

Directions for quizzes: Associate with a Gradebook Column
