Requesting New Canvas Tools

Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) is a standard set of specifications for allowing third-party learning applications to integrate with educational platforms. Third-party LTI integration allows the application to connect to Canvas. Before submitting your request, view the list of LTIs that have either been approved or requested.
