How do I add an External App that creates a Rich Content Editor button?

If an external app is configured for the Rich Content Editor, it will appear in the Rich Content Editor for use throughout your course.

Verify App

Before you configure the app you will need to verify that the app can become a Rich Content Editor button by visiting the Edu App Center (External Tools). Click the app to view more information.
