How do I use the Impact integration in Mastery Connect Canvas?

Users who have access to Canvas, Mastery Connect, and Impact can access the Impact integration in Mastery Connect. This integration allows admins to customize in-app messaging, measure Mastery Connect adoption, and support Mastery Connect users.

A set of Mastery Connect Out of the Box content is now offered by Impact. This includes:

  • Inline Editor templates added inside your LMS
  • Contexts and Monitors inside your Impact Dashboard
  • Mastery Connect reporting template
  • Insights
  • Mastery Connect Support Center category
  • Walkthroughs


  • Make sure to alert your Instructure CSM if you would like to enable the Impact widget in Mastery Connect.
  • Impact will only gather data from the moment the widget is turned on, therefore any prior activity in Mastery Connect will not appear in the Insights.

Enable LTI Mastery Connect

The Tool Categories (LTI Mastery Connect and Mastery Connect: Custom Reports) should be toggled on for all support categories, reporting templates, contexts, monitors, and insights to be visible inside your Dashboard.

Note: The integration is with Canvas and Mastery Connect therefore authentication in your Canvas is needed in order to generate the Insights. Logging in through the standalone version of Mastery Connect will not trigger monitors, show messages, etc.

Inline Editor

Inline Editor

As Mastery Connect is a third-party tool, you can reach the Inline Editor by enabling the Third party tool frame, once you have navigated to Mastery Connect inside Canvas. You can then access the Out of the Box predefined template as well as define your local inline templates.

Out of the Box Contexts and Monitors

Out of the Box Contexts and Monitors

Out of the Box contexts and monitors have been created around Mastery Connect functionalities. Most contexts and monitors are focused on Instructor as well as Student activity inside Mastery Connect.

You can filter both Contexts and Monitors inside your Impact Dashboard by using the Tool Category filter [1] and selecting LTI Mastery Connect [2].

Mastery Connect Reporting Templates and Insights

Mastery Connect Reporting Templates and Insights

The Mastery Connect Instructor and Student Monitors are located in the Integrated tools > Mastery Connect Report. To find these, navigate to the Reporting Templates > Integrated tools > Mastery Connect, where you can view all monitor (sub)categories, inside your Impact Dashboard.

Note: For more information on reporting templates, visit How do I edit an existing reporting template in the Impact Dashboard? or How do I add an activity monitor to a reporting template in the Impact Dashboard?

To find the insights generated by Mastery Connect Reporting Templates, navigate to your Insights inside your Dashboard [1] and select the Tool Adoption tab [2].

Select Integrated Tools under Reporting Template [3]. To apply the filter, click the Apply button [4].

Monitor Categories

Once the filter is applied, select the Mastery Connect tool group.

Mastery Connect Support Center Category

Support Center

All Mastery Connect admin, instructor, and student guides have been categorized into contextualized support categories inside your Support Center for inline help. Make sure the LTI Mastery Connect tool category is toggled on, in order for Support to be visible among instructors. Admin guides are categorized under the Admin Support Category and are assigned the LTI Mastery Connect and MC: Admin tool categories. They are contextualized into Admin pages inside Mastery Connect. In order to access contextualized Mastery Connect admin guides inside your Canvas instance, the tool category MC: Admin and LTI Mastery Connect should be enabled in your dashboard.
