The Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) allows for the integration of multiple external applications and resources, from textbook publisher content to free, open-source interactive learning objects. Please note: if you use publisher content that is not accessible to students, you are still responsible for providing accessible content if a student requests it! Take a look at the resources below and see what you can include in your own online, hybrid, or face-to-face classes!
