Register and Connect to Argos

 

The first time you launch Argos from a newly integrated LMS, you must register your institution.

Fill in the Institution Name, Institution URL, Email, and Location fields, then select Canvas and Register.

 

Note: If you do not complete this step, the first person who launches Argos (such as instructor), will be shown the Registration screen. We recommend you do this in advance of your instructors needing to connect to Argos, because an Argos Admin must take the step of accepting your registration, which may take up to 24 hours. If you have not received approval in 24 hours, or need it more quickly, content Argos Support.

The Registration screen will add some suggested URLs.

Important Note: You must change the pre-populated URLs to reflect the URL of your Canvas instance.

Pre-populated values will contain “canvas.instructure.com”

Each of these values must be changed to contain your institution’s Canvas URL. You must also add the Deployment ID you copied in a previous step, then click Register.

After submitting your registration, an email is sent to the Argos team for approval. Once approved, you will receive an email saying your registration is approved.

After approval, the next time you or your instructors launch a course link to Argos, the Getting Started screen will appear so that they may select the desired content.
