Setting up the D2L Connector

Remark Test Grading Cloud can connect directly to your Brightspace D2L (Desire to Learn) account so teachers can seamlessly send grades to D2L. Your Remark administrator must first set up a link to your D2L server. Then teachers can link classes and tests to D2L to send information between the two applications.

Note: The D2L Connector can be purchased through our sales department.

Setting up the D2L Link in Remark Test Grading Cloud

Please use the following instructions to link Remark to your D2L account. You must be an administrator in Remark Test Grading Cloud to complete these steps.

Registering an OAuth 2.0 Client in D2L

For general information on registering an OAuth 2.0 client in D2L please refer to the Brightspace developer platform documentation. Once you understand how the process works, complete the following steps in D2L.

  1. From the “Admin Tools” menu, click “Manage Extensibility.”
  2. Click “OAuth 2.0.”
  3. Click “Register an app.”
  4. In step 4 enter a value for “Application Name” that will identify the Remark Cloud for your users (e.g. Remark Test Grading Cloud, Remark Cloud, etc.).
    1. In step 5 leave the “Redirect URI” field blank (if possible) and we will come back to it later. If the field is required you may enter https://api.remark.cloud and we will change it later.
    2. In step 6 enter the following value for “Scope:”

core:*:* enrollment:orgunit:read grades:gradeobjects:read grades:gradevalues:write quizzing:quizzes:read quizzing:quizzes:writeusers:userdata:read


Retrieving the OAuth 2.0 Credentials

For general information on retrieving the OAuth 2.0 credentials in D2L please refer to the Brightspace developer platform documentation

  1. You will want to select the OAuth 2.0 application that we just created in the previous step.
  2. Make note of the “Client ID” and “Client Secret” values for the following steps.

In Remark Test Grading Cloud

  1. Click “Account Dashboard.”
  2. Click the three dots all the way to the right and choose “Account Settings.”
  3. Select the "Learning Management Systems" tab.
  4. In the “Enable LMS Integration” card, select "D2L" in the dropdown.
  5. Enter the URL for your D2L instance into the "URL" field.
  6. Enter the OAuth 2.0 “Client ID” obtained from D2L.
  7. Enter the OAuth 2.0 “Client Secret” obtained from D2L.
  8. Click "Save."
  9. Once the D2L card appears, copy the “Redirect URI” from the new LMS card.


Back to D2L

  1. In the area where you initially registered your OAuth2 application, paste the redirect URI into the "Redirect URIs" field.

Your Remark account is now linked to your D2L account.

Give Permissions

You should be automatically prompted to give your teachers the proper permissions to add students to the account via the D2L Connector. If you add teachers later or do not see this prompt, you can give teachers permission to add students to the system via the Account Security settings.

  1. In Remark Test Grading Cloud, Click “Account Dashboard.”
  2. Click the three dots all the way to the right and choose “Account Security.”
  3. Click the “Manage Students for Account” group.
  4. Select the teachers you wish to be in this group.
  5. Click the “Save Group Membership” button.

Teachers are now able to link classes and students from D2L to Remark Test Grading Cloud. Click here for more information about using the D2L Connector.
