During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

Old UI

Easily add and manage content library extensions, like OpenEd, Equella, and Khan.

Buzz comes with Khan Academy and OpenEd content already integrated. Currently, you can deactivate these extensions and/or add additional integrations to the Digital Library.

To add an integration to your Digital Library:  

  1. Open Settings in the Domain toolbar.
  1. Select Integrations and scroll down to Library Extensions.
  2. Click Add:
    • When integrating Equella, follow the directions below.
    • When integrating any other extension, enter the ID here and Save.
  • To edit existing integrations click the pencil (edit) icon.
  • To delete existing integrations click the garbage can (deleted) icon.
Integrating Equella

When integrating Equella:  

  1. Click the pencil (edit) icon and provide:
    • The extension ID (required).
    • The Title of this extension instance (Equella, for example, allows multiple instances to be added) (optional).
    • The extension Provider name. Use when you have multiple extensions of the same type (optional).
    • The URL for the extension (required).
    • The Thumbnail URL, which points to the image you want to use as the extension's thumbnail (optional).
    • An indication regarding whether you want to Show library in the Digital Library.
  2. Save.

How would we add another LTI integrationed digital library like OER Commons?

Can we create a custom digital library?

How do we add an image to use on another LTI integrated digital library like Khan?

Hello!

Unfortunately you may not create a separate custom digital library.  I recommend reaching out to your account manager to help choose and add a quality library extension that is in the market. 

If you are describing the thumbnail image like Khan, this is the domain thumbnail. It requires API support to change the thumbnail.
