What is the App Center?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

The Canvas App Center is your gateway to powerful teaching tools directly in Canvas and integrates the Edu App Center's external tools into your Canvas account. The App Center allows you to configure external apps without requiring manual configuration.

  • Created a customized teaching experience
  • Open the door to more possibilities
  • Filter apps by name
  • View installed apps

Admins can manage the apps that can be used in courses for accounts and subaccounts by creating a whitelist in the Edu App Center and managing the whitelist in Canvas.
