Canvas - External App Integrations

Canvas integrations are known as External Apps. These include library resources, external textbook products (like Pearson or Cengage), and multimedia applications (YouTube). This page lists the integrations and external apps available for use in UW-Superior Canvas courses.

App Approval Process

All apps used in the DLE must first be approved by UW System Administration. The External Application Integration Requests page details how this process works, as well as which apps are already approved for use and the approval status of apps that have already been submitted for review.

System Level Apps

The following apps are installed in at least one of UW-Superior’s Canvas sub-accounts at the top level. Most of these are only installed in the Instructional Top Level account due to licensing restrictions.
