Publisher Materials Available in Canvas

If you are using a publisher website for materials and assessments in your Canvas course, you may be able to ‘pair’ your Canvas course to the publisher course site so that students can connect to the publisher site from Canvas without having to create a separate login account. Some publishers also allow for additional services between your Canvas course and the publisher site, so that publisher assignments and quizzes are individually accessible in your Canvas course and also integrated with your Canvas gradebook.

Enabling a Pre-Installed Publisher in Canvas

Some publishers are already configured to work with Canvas. Go to your Canvas course, open Settings from Course Navigation and click on the Navigation tab at the top to see which publishers are already available to enable in Canvas:

There will be some publishers listed at the bottom like Pearson and McGraw-Hill. If your publisher is listed, enable the menu item like pictured below, and click the Save button at the bottom of the page. The publisher will be listed on the Course Navigation menu, click to connect to the publisher site from your Canvas course.

Request a Publisher Canvas Integration

The process to enable a new publisher or a new publisher series into Canvas takes several weeks to complete. The steps include:

  1. Indentify the textbook and contact the publisher representative.
  2. Create a Service Desk Ticket requesting a Risk Assessment. Include the publisher representative contact information for the security team to contact for the material and details they need to complete the assessment.
  3. If the completed risk assessment is successfully passed, create a new Service Desk Ticket requesting the Publisher Canvas Integration. Include the contact information for the publisher representative and the technical support team for the Canvas Administrator to contact and complete the integration process.
  4. Once the Publisher Canvas Integration is complete, you will be contacted by the Canvas Administrator.
  5. Contact your publisher representative for documentation, videos, and other resources and support using the publisher content and services in Canvas. Be sure to include Student resources in your course to help them get started accessing publisher content and assignments.

Technical Support

To request technical support, submit a Technology Service Desk email to start a ticket.
