Using third-party integrations in Canvas (publisher content and add-on tools)

Description

Third-party integrations are direct connections between vendor tools and the learning management system you are using. This means that any integration links or assignments created in Blackboard will need to be recreated in Canvas. In some cases, you will need to relink the content that you created on the third-party tool page (such as publisher assignments) to your Canvas course. 

Below you will find the list of current publishers and add-on tools that are available within Canvas.  The list includes tools that are supported by Ohio University Office of Information Technology and those that are supported directly by the vendors.  Please check back often, as the list will be updated as additional integrations are made available within Canvas.
