LMS Integrations

The tutorials in this category apply specifically if you use BookWidgets in conjunction with a Learning Management System (LMS). Whenever any of the titles below ends with (Administrators), the tutorial explains which steps your LMS administrator needs to take in order to make BookWidgets available on the platform for teachers to use. The same title without that suffix then applies to teachers wanting to work with BookWidgets once the administrator has completed the setup.
