A Note from Schoology:

Configuring the App is not the same as installing it. School Admins have the option to configure the App only, giving their instructors the option to install it individually. To do this, do not check any boxes designating which course or school you want the app installed in after you've clicked the Install App button located in Schoology's App Center.

After you have successfully installed and configured the Issues & Controversies app, you will be able to access it and perform a search. Please consult the Issues & Controversies Schoology LTI App Overview article for more information.

If instead you receive an error message stating that your request cannot be validated, please contact our support department.
