Learning Tool Integrations
What is an LTI?
Below is a list of external learning tools, also known as LTI, that are integrated within Canvas by Penn State. Although some may be visible within your course already, most are hidden by default, so you will need to display them. Additional tools may be installed in certain courses based on your school or department. For more about displaying learning tools, see the knowledge base article on how to incorporate LTI integrations in your Canvas course.
Current Learning Tools
While most LTIs are available for all courses Universitywide, some LTIs are only available to select schools or departments, such as Penn State World Campus. Please check the availability listed under each tool’s description.
