How do I connect to web services outside of Canvas?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). This lesson may include two images for specific steps to show the difference between the two designs.

Canvas is integrated with a number of third party web services. Most of these services can be configured from the user settings page.

When you register other web services with Canvas, you can integrate your account with services you already use.

If you want to show any of your registered web services on your profile page, click the Let fellow course/group members... checkbox. You can select specific services to display by editing your profile.
