If your LMS supports Learning Tools Interoperability® Content-Item Message you can login and apply for an LTI 1.x key and secret and install this web site into your LMS as an App Store / Learning Object Repository that allows you to author you class in your LMS while selecting tools and content from this site one item at a time. You will be given instructions on how to set up the "app store" in your LMS when you receive your key and secret.
If you are using Google Classroom, you can automatically link the resources in this site into your classroom in the low-style view of the lessons. (must be logged in)
If your LMS supports neither Content Item, nor Common Cartridge, but does support LTI, you can hand-copy the links from this course material into your LMS one-by-one. We have a special low-style view of the lessons to make this hand-copying as easy as it can be.
