How do I link to my VitalSource eTextbook with my course?
You will learn how to use the External tool to create a link for your students to view the VitalSource eTextbook you have selected for your course.
There are two main steps to this process:
Follow these sub-steps to obtain the vbid code for your VitalSource etextbook.
1.1. Login to the CSUF Portal
Open your web browser and navigate to my.fullerton.edu. Type in your username and password as you normally would.
1.2. Locate the My Courses block
1.3. Click on Add to TTITANium
Note: You have a direct link to your etextbook (by clicking on View EBook) and the link for the vbid code. By clicking on Add to TITANium, the vbid code will be revealed.
1.4. Click on Copy to Clipboard
You have now located your vbid code for that specific course. This code will be different for every course and every term you teach.
You have now learned how to use the External tool in TITANium to create a link to your eTextbook for your students.
As a side note, this process will need to be completed for each section of the course you teach. And, it will need to be repeated every new term.
