And enter the information as follows:
- Activity name: Sift & Winnow Module 1 (For module 1)
- Launch URL: https://clue.lti.wisc.edu/lti/launch

Finally click "Save and Display" at the bottom. If everything went well, you'll see Sift & Winnow module 1 displayed and available to your students.
Next add the remaining Sift & Winnow modules to the course in the same way. As of August 2015, there are six Sift & Winnow modules in total, numbered 1 through 6. In setting up the remaining five modules , follow the directions above and change the custom parameter to each module number.
