You may wish to integrate a new third-party product with D2L - for example, a new course tool or material from a content provider that is not already set up between a vendor and Lone Star College. You should first check the Approved Instructional Technologies list to see if Lone Star already has an agreement with that third party. If your desired integration is on that list, you should follow the instructions on that page to enable the integration in your course(s). If the integration you want to use is not on that list, you need to speak to your Chair or Dean and have the Dean fill out the LMS Integration Request, located on the VTAC Self-Service page.
- Click VTAC Support on the navbar.
- In the Self-Service column, under the Course Design heading, click [More…].
- Click on the LMS Integration Request form.
- Check the box to indicate a Dean is filling out the form.
- Fill out every field and click the Submit button.
IMPORTANT: Please allow at least three months between the time you submit a request and the time you would like the integration to be in place. Lone Star College is required to obtain a signed legal agreement from the vendor that addresses, among other things, adherence to accessibility and FERPA requirements. The time for OGC (Office of General Counsel) and the vendor to complete that agreement can be lengthy; therefore, we request a three-month lead time. Please note, we cannot guarantee the integration will be available in three months. The process can sometimes take even longer.
If the process for obtaining an agreement between OGC and Lone Star College is not complete by two weeks before semester start, then integration will not be available for the beginning of that semester.
