As a Canvas administrator for your institution, follow these steps to allow educators to create assignments with Edfinity as an External Tool.
- Contact Edfinity at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a consumer key and shared secret for your institution.
- In Admin Settings, choose the Apps tab and add a new app.
- Configure the new app as follows with the provided consumer key and secret:
The domain is "https://edfinity.com" and the launch URL is "https://edfinity.com/lti/assess". Privacy can be set to any of the available options. Using the Anonymous setting is not advised however as instructors will not be able to use Edfinity's tools to track student progress.
- Save your new App. Educators will now be able to integrate their courses using these instructions.
If you'd like to test the integration without setting up your own Edfinity account, you can use this demonstration assignment URL for testing:
Registering for this course is free.
