Wiris Quizzes for Brightspace

Now you can include Math & Science by Wiris question types in your Brightspace course by following these instructions.

To use Wiris Quizzes in a Brightspace campus, the first step is to install Wiris Quizzes as a remote plugin in your Brightspace course.


Before installing the plugin into your campus, you need to get the login credentials for your institution.

  • If you are just testing, you can use the trial credentials:
  Consumer Key: demo.wiris.com
  Shared Secret: 5EQZQ-GN4T6-EZ7BN-QHTBD-TEFQB


If you have already purchased your license and you want to use the Product Key of your institution, go to http://www.wiris.com/products/me with your user/password for www.wiris.com and search for the Product Key of your Wiris Quizzes LTI license. The Consumer Key is the domain of your institution (if your website is 'www.acme.net', the Consumer key will be 'acme.net').

Purchase your license

If you still need to purchase your license, please contact us at info@wiris.com

The global one can be accessed through ⚙️ Admin Tools > External Learning Tools. The course one can be accessed through: [Course] > Course Tools > All Course Tools > External Learning Tools.
  3. A tool provider with the wiris.net name in the Launch point column should appear in the list.
