Canvas External Tools

BGSU Approved Canvas Learning Tools

The list below contains all of the LTIs (Learning Tool Interoperability) that have been approved at BGSU. LTIs allow for external tools to be integrated into Canvas to add enhanced functionality.

While there are many more LTIs available, the list below represents those 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 LTI be evaluated for addition to this list, please fill out a Software Procurement Request.
