How do I add an assignment using an external app?
When you create an assignment, you can choose to add an external app (LTI tool) as a submission type. External apps must be added in your course before they can be added to an assignment.
- The External Tool submission type does not support group assignments or peer reviews.
- Grade passback from external applications (LTI tools) to the Canvas Gradebook is not restricted by course start dates. When students have access to a course before a course start date, they can participate in assignments using some external applications (LTI tools), and grades for those assignments will populate the Gradebook.
Click the name of the LTI tool . Depending on the tool type, you may be taken to a separate screen for further configuration.
If you want the assignment to load in a new tab, click the Load in a new tab checkbox . Click the Select button .
