Steps to Repeat:
LTI integration placements as a tool type in course menus are not accessible in the Blackboard and Instructor apps. The links appear 'greyed-out' and do not function.
The same tool links work as expected in the apps when used inside a a content area.
Resolution/Workaround: As a workaround, LTI tool links can be provided from content areas instead of the course menu.
