This document describes the general steps to register for a course hosted with the edX LMS and to launch IllumiDesk from within the course using the LTI 1.1 standard.
There are two courses available with different privacy settings:
Introduction to Computer Science: email is “public” and sent to the IllumiDesk external tool.
Introduction to Data Science: email is not sent to IllumiDesk and thus uses the LTI “user_id” field for the username.
