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.

Faculty interested in adding a new app to Canvas should contact the University Coordinator of Digital Education, Christopher Casey (chriscas@umich.edu, 313-593-3504).  Installation requests should be made at least 60 days in advance for the process in the Integrating External Apps with the Learning Management System Policy to be completed.  The process may take longer than 60 days if the vendor needs access to protected data and needs to negotiate a Data Protection Agreement with U-M Technology Procurement and General Council.
