Canvas LMS: Integration, Development, and Data Access
The Canvas learning management serves as a platform to support integration between teaching and learning tools and systems. Canvas supports integration through three methods:
- Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) is a standard that enables integration of third-party or vendor tools with your Canvas course, or allows you to enhance the course with other Web applications and Internet resources.
- Developer Keys provide developers the ability to build an application that can access the Canvas API as the user (e.g., the student or the teacher).
- API Access Tokens can be used to programmatically access the API.
