Information technology tools and resources at the UW
Canvas App Center
The Canvas App Center lists third-party tools that are designed to simplify and/or automate a wide range of common teaching and learning tasks.
To see the Canvas App Center, in Canvas, go to the Canvas course navigation, click Settings, and then click the Apps tab.
UW-IT has reviewed the Canvas App Center listings and found they meet key criteria:
- Operate via a secure connection (HTTPS)
- Provide contact information (phone number or email) for customer support
- Support a pedagogical purpose
- Work as advertised
UW-IT recommends using only the tools that meet these criteria.
Please note that UW-IT cannot provide support for third-party tools available through Canvas. Although we are dedicated to ensuring an optimal experience using the Canvas LMS, the third-party tools that Canvas makes available are too numerous for us to adequately support.
If you experience difficulty using any of these tools, please use the contact information associated with the particular tool.
