External Tools (also known as “applications,” “apps,” and/or “LTIs”) are developed by other third party vendors to integrate with the Canvas LMS. These tools must be vetted and approved to be supported by system administration. Certain external tools may not be supported due to security or functionality concerns.
For additional information regarding external tools, including a list of tools already added to Canvas and the process for requesting a new external tool, visit the External Tools page.
