How do I add an External App in my course?
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.
There are many places where you can find Apps to use in your courses. You can add external apps in the Canvas App Center, the Edu App Center, or through Vendor-provided tools.

Located in Course Settings, the App Center is your gateway to powerful teaching tools that are easily integrated into a Canvas Account or Canvas Course. These apps can be installed into Canvas with one click.

Use Vendor-Provided Tools
Many vendors use their own external tool integrations. Vendors will have their own landing pages with instructions on how to configure and use the tool. Some vendors may provide a common cartridge that will import the tools for you. However, any app used by a vendor will require a key and secret provided by the vendor and need to be configured manually, by URL, or by XML.
