Canvas Integration Manual

 

Before You Start

These directions are to add Revision Assistant  to Canvas Learning Management System. You must sign-in to your Canvas account each time before adding and/or using Revision Assistant. 

 

Your Canvas System Admin can install Revision Assistant as an External Tool/App at the course or the district level. However, if your system admin does not plan to configure the External Tool at the system level, the Course Admin (or instructor) will need to install the LTI Integration at the course level.

 

Revision Assistant  functions as an 'App' within Canvas.

You will have to add Revision Assistant as an App before using Revision Assistant in your course. 

This means that you will have to add Revision Assistant as an External Learning Tool from the Course Admin page before you can make and assign prompts. You can add Revision Assistant as an App by following the directions below:​​
