What is an Integration (LTI) in Canvas?

Canvas supports LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability¬ģ), an LMS standard that allows third-party tool integration within your Canvas courses. As a part of the migration to Canvas, all continuing integrations were reviewed and migrated. Each of the integrations below has been tested and approved for Canvas at WCU. Many of the core integrations are supported primarily by the Help Desk and the Coulter Faculty Commons LMS Team.¬† Some, as noted below, are supported by college or departmental support or by vendor support.

All LTIs that will be enabled in the WCU instance of Canvas will need to go through an approval, testing, and setup process before they can be added to your course.  More information about the process of requesting an integration is below.

How do I request an integration in Canvas?

To request an integration you will need to open an IT project request and give information related to what you and/or the vendor know about the following:  funding model and cost, scope of anticipated tool use, data management and privacy policies of the vendor or tool, and, if there is an existing product or service already in use at WCU, a justification for requesting an additional product.

After you have submitted the request, a member of IT Academic Engagement will follow up with you to walk you through the review process.  We want to emphasize that the LMS team and WCU IT are required to comply with specific policies, laws, and regulations and that no requestor should expect that any requested integration will be immediately activated.  This request process is not merely technical and it takes time.

For more information about the processes related to university level software as a service please go to the website for academic engagement and IT governance.
