Installed Apps

Apps are an easy way to add new features to Canvas.  They can be added to individual courses, or to all courses in an account.  Once configured, you can link them through course modules and create assignments for assessment tools.  

DISCLAIMER

Canvas supports the integration of external applications using the IMS LTI standard. When an external tool is launched, some student information may be passed along to the external tool provider. The LTI standard dictates the types of information passed and how they are passed. When integrating Canvas with external tools, all efforts are made to minimize the student data transferred and to vet the security practices of the tool vendor.

However, with the exception of official Emory IT tools such as Office 365 and Box, most 3rd party LTI's are not governed by Emory University’s Information Technology office. Although it is Emory’s policy to protect student privacy, please understand that Emory does not guarantee the privacy of information shared on external 3rd party applications. Information you provide may be visible to others using this application. You are not required to provide personal information. By signing in and sharing information, you imply your understanding of potential privacy risks.
