This article is for DEVELOPERS and PARTNERS who are integrating Snapplify Engage into the D2L Brightspace LMS. 

Once you’ve created your D2L Brightspace course and your students have purchased their prescribed books via Snapplify Engage, you can share location links to Snapplify ebooks or audiobooks directly from a module in the course. This makes it easy to collaborate with students and direct them to the correct content. 

Links can be shared from a specific page/location in an ebook in the Snapplify Reader app or from the title in Engage.

To link to a Snapplify book from a course module in D2L Brightspace:

  1. Log in to D2L Brightspace and navigate to your course.
  2. Click the ‘Content’ tab.
  3. Ensure that the module where the Snapplify link should be added is selected in the left-hand navigation, then click the ‘Create New’ button.
  4. Select ‘Web Link’ from the options.
  5. Add the web link in the ‘Link’ textbox (either from a specific location in the Snapplify Reader or from the title in Engage), as well as the display name, then specify if the link should be embedded on the page or open in a new tab.
  6. Click the 'Save' button.

The web link is added as a new topic within the module.

To link to content from the homepage via the ‘Open in Snapplify Reader’ widget, refer to this article.

When adding the web link, the embed option will display the title information directly on the topic page, whereas the option to open in a new tab will open the title information in a new tab from the newly added topic.

In both cases, you can navigate to the Snapplify Reader app and the book will display. 

You don’t necessarily have to link to just textbooks; you can also link to other Engage library books for recommended reading, for example.

For more information on using and navigating D2L Brightspace, refer to the Brightspace Help documentation.
