Tips

  1. The easiest way to add an app on a course-by-course basis would be to provide an admin with the information to manually add the app to a course.

  2. The other way to easily add an app on a course-by-course basis is by having the app available in the app in the external app library, which it looks like Sibme is already listed there.

  3. Admins are the only ones that can apps at the account level (add an app to multiple course at one time), teachers would only be able to add an app to their own course.
