External Tools

Approved external digital tools (third party software) can be added to Canvas to add new features or functionality, such as publisher materials and specialized tools. CSU has a number of external tool integrations with Canvas. These integrations usually use an LTI (Learning Tool Interoperability) to connect these tools to Canvas.

Most approved external tools are added to a course module or an assignment in Canvas.

A few select external tools (Echo360, Pearson, Macmillan) can be added to the left course navigation.
