Canvas - Integrations

Last Updated: 02/26/2020

What are integrations? 

There are a number of applications that can be integrated within Canvas courses. Integrations allow users to seamlessly access an external application inside of Canvas without requiring users to sign-in to the application.

Integration Support

OIT provides support for integrations that are also OIT supported services (e.g. Kaltura, VoiceThread, Turnitin, Office 365, G Suite and Digication). All other integrations are managed by the provider; however, OIT can answer questions if there are issues with application links, or if there are issues with syncing information to Canvas.

Request a new Integration

If you are interested in integrating a new application, it must undergo a security and accessibility compliance review. To begin the review process, please complete the Digital Technology Compliance Review Request (Form A). Please note that you will be using the integration in Canvas in the field that asks How will the product/service be used. Once your application has been reviewed, contact the IT Service Center at oithelp@colorado.edu or (303)735-4357 to have the application integrated in Canvas.
