One other thing to mention in the image above is the Platform Name, this doesn't matter and just helps you identify what connection it is.

To test your new Niche Academy tool navigate to any course and make sure “edit mode” is turned on.
  • Select add a new activity or resource and select external tool
  • Give your activity a name (ex. Fighting Fake News)
  • Under preconfigured tools, you should see the new Niche Academy tool. 
  • If the configuration was a success, your academy tutorial selection menu should appear.
