Enterprise and Content LMS Integrations
External tools add enhanced functionality to your learning environment within Canvas. Our collection of enterprise and content tools can be used to add features and content to every course site in Canvas. The majority of these features are reviewed for security and accessibility. Also, many are supported locally by BGSU departments except as noted. Many have no cost for your department or students. Where applicable faculty should include these anticipated subscriptions and associated costs when providing your list of course materials.
The list below represents vendors that BGSU has worked with to ensure that no FERPA protected data is exposed to unsecured systems. Instructors are asked to be cautious regarding the use of External Tools in order to avoid being personally responsible for data that might be shared and misused in any manner by an External Tool.
If you would like to request an evaluation of an external tool for addition to this list, please fill out a Software Procurement Request.
