Welcome to Loree Admin Dashboard

Glad! Managing Loree editor interface features via Loree Admin dashboard. 

Navigation to Loree Admin Dashboard

Happy to help you to take a tour of the Loree Admin Dashboard!

For navigating into the Loree Admin Dashboard,

  1. We need to create a Loree-admin in institutional roles. (Role name: Loree-admin, Role id: LOREEADMIN )

  2. Then assign it to the user as a secondary institutional role, who needs Loree admin access.

For these above steps, we need to add the LTI tool parameter.Add these parameter in tool provider custom parameters: admin_role=@X@user.secondary_institution_role@X@Steps to Add parameter:

BB Admin page -> LTI Tool provider -> Edit Loree -> Add Tool Provider Custom Parameters.

Once, the user is added to the Loree-Admin role, the user can see the Admin button in the top right corner of the Modules page of the Loree LTI in the Blackboard. By clicking the Admin button, the user can manage the features of the Loree editor via the Loree Admin Dashboard. We have an organization limit on the admin dashboard. So we will be able to view only the status in the admin dashboard within the organization. This will keep the organization’s data protected.

To exit the Admin Dashboard we have to click on Exit Admin in the top right corner of the Admin Dashboard page.

Roles & Features

Once after switching to the Loree Admin Dashboard by clicking the Admin button, the user will be able to see the Roles & Features Accordions and their corresponding Tabs,

Loree Roles

Loree Roles will take care of the features for a particular role. By default, the Teacher and Designer Loree Role with all the features enabled will be created by Loree. In detail, when the Admin enables/disables features for a role say Teacher or Designer, or Create New Role (the admin can create a new role by clicking the Click New Role button in the right corner) say Role 1 or Role 2, these roles should be mapped with the Blackboard Roles (Course role of a user) to get the desired features in the Loree editor.

Note: The account admin of the Blackboard instance will get all Loree features by default.

Blackboard Roles

Blackboard Roles will fetch all the roles in the sub-account of the course that you have entered. And if you have entered a course that is not created under any sub-account then your Blackboard instance will show all the Root account roles and if the Admin switches to Sub-Account then it will fetch the roles in the particular Sub-Account. Once the Loree Roles are created by using the Loree default role, the Loree Roles should be mapped with the Blackboard role which is the role based on the particular course role(Blackboard course navigation → People → role assigned).

Note: ‘Select role’ (default - dropdown select) will not assign any features or roles.

If the Admin mapped the Loree roles for the 'Root Account' then it will reflect in all the Sub-Accounts and courses. Also, the Admin can map the Loree roles based on the Sub-Account in the Blackboard instance by clicking the Root Account button.

Select Root Account accordion for its Sub-Accounts,

Sub-Account list will be fetched and can select the desired Sub-Account which roles to be mapped,

Click the 'Fetch roles' button to fetch the sub-Accounts roles, and map the desired Loree roles.

If the admin has entered a course that is created under a sub-account then the admin will only have the access to update roles and features for the course he has selected based on the sub-account of the course.
For Example:
If we are working on a course present in a sub-account named Migration training we can only map the roles for the Migration training Sub-account or its child account (sample, sample-dep-03) as mentioned in the screenshot below.

 

Custom Blocks

Custom blocks are the concept of saving or creating any of the template, row, or elements under any desired Name and Category. Here in the admin dashboard Custom Blocks, the admins can manage the Global and update the template name, and category and see the details of the Custom Blocks.

Custom Templates

Custom Templates are the templates we’re saving or creating inside the Loree editor. In this tab, the admins can update the template to Global or make the global template non-global, can see the details of the template like category, created by, created at, and last updated columns, and can also update the template Name and Category, Search the desired templates and even search the templates by Category just by clicking Category dropdown in the right corner. We have an organization limit on templates. So we will be able to view only the templates within the organization. Now we can only share/global/user templates within the organization.
