Canvas Integrations

Canvas Integrations

Canvas is able to integrate with many 3rd party apps through the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) Standard.  UM-Dearborn has already configured many app integrations, as listed in the table below.  Support for most 3rd party apps is provided by the vendor, not directly from Instructure (Canvas) or the UM-Dearborn Canvas Support Staff.

If you are interested in adding a new app to Canvas, contact the University Coordinator of Digital Education, Christopher Casey (, 313-593-3504).  Please make any app installation requests at least 30 days in advance to allow time for the process in the Integrating External Apps with the Learning Management System Policy to be followed.
