These LTIs provide a single sign-on for instructors and students to access textbook assignment, assessment or other digital resources. Below is a list of textbook LTIs that have been reviewed and approved for use at system or sub-account level at Clemson University. These are available to all courses and do not require additional installation.

New Textbook Integration Request

System or Sub-account

Any new textbook integration request to the system or a sub-account must go through a security and data privacy review to meet the university information technology standards as well as accessibility compliance. Review and testing will be conducted to ensure appropriate functionality. To start the process, go to the CCIT vendor management website and click on the “Register IT Solution” button.

Individual Course

If you are adopting a new textbook that has digital resources and would like to use only in your own course, please check with the publisher support to ensure the integration complies with the security and accessibility guidelines. If accessibility compliance is not met, an equally effective alternative access plan will be needed for students with disabilities in your Canvas course.

Technical Support

CCIT and Clemson Online Support

It is the instructor’s responsibility to obtain any key and secret required for the new installation. If you run into an issue with the installation or the LTI does not work properly in your course, submit a ticket to with the course and LTI information.
