Where can I find External Apps to use in my course?

There are many places where you can find Apps to use in your courses. Below are the four most commonly used options.

Canvas App Center

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.

Edu App Center

If your institution does not have the Canvas App Center configured, Edu Apps is an index lists of all current Canvas-compatible External Apps and is updated frequently. Each app provides details that you can use to manually configure an app into Canvas.

Vendor Provided Tools

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 sed by a vendor will require a key and secret provided by the vendor.

Community-Created Tools

The Canvas Community also hosts a forum where users can post third-party tools that have been used in their course or institution. The Extension & Integration Library has information regarding third-party tools to use in Canvas.
