How do I add a Labster simulation link to Lessons?

Updated on

Instructors may configure Labster simulations through Sakai Assignments or Sakai Lessons. For seamless passing of grades from Labster to the Sakai Gradebook, adding Labster via Lessons is highly recommended. Follow these instructions to create a Labster simulation link through Lessons.

Warning: Labster simulation links, when copied from one course to another via Import from Site, will only be functional if  an instructor also adds at least one additional simulation link to the destination course. Otherwise, simulation links should not be imported and should instead be added 'from scratch' to new courses.

Note: If the Gradebook tool exists in the course, a Gradebook item is automatically created upon adding a Labster simulation link to Lessons. Students' best attempt scores for the simulation will automatically appear in that Gradebook item.
