            • You can add the Pathway LTI to your course more than once if you have more than one Pathway.

            Installing the Badgr Pathway LTI is easy!

            Badgr Pathways gives teachers and students an easy to use view of their progress through a pathway right in their Canvas courses. Here's how to set it up.

            From your issuer dashboard in Badgr Pathways, find the pathway you want to add to your course in the list of pathways, and select LTI Integrations. Complete the install by copying the key and secret from Pathways into Canvas. See below for details.

            		<lticm:property name="privacy_level">public</lticm:property>
            		<lticm:property name="tool_id">pathways</lticm:property>
            		<lticm:options name="course_navigation">

            			<lticm:property name="enabled">true</lticm:property>

            If you have multiple Pathways integrations and need to differentiate them or would just prefer a different name in the navigation pane, you can change the name.

            Change the value in the following element: <lticm:property name="text">21st Century Skills Pathway</lticm:property>
            The text you change there will be displayed in the navigation pane.
