  1. Log into Blackboard and click on the section that you would like to work with 
  2. Make sure that the Edit mode is on (located in the upper, right corner of the class)
  3. Click on the + sign located in the upper left-hand corner of the course, just above yourcourse menu
  4. Select "Tool Link" from the drop-down menu
  5. Enter the name of the link you are creating in the empty box next to *Name. I recommend something straightforward like,"My Nutrition Lab", "My Spanish Lab", "My Math Lab", etc.    
  6. Click on the drop-down menu for the type tool you want to add next to Type: and select "MyLabs LTI Bridge" from the list
    MyLabs LTI Bridge
  7. Click the check box next to "Available to Users" so that your students will see this link. And click the "Submit" butto.
