Qualtrics:LTI

Qualtrics surveys are easily set-up as Canvas assignments, making them an integral part of the course. Benefit from all options related to a Canvas assignment like deadlines and restricted access. After completing a survey, the submission gets registered in the grade book. This helps to make evaluations part of the learning experience, and not a separate task to be done after completion of the course.

Teachers can keep track of response rates of surveys using the Canvas grade book, but won’t be able to see the answers students gave. Hereby anonymity of surveys can be guaranteed.

Remind:LTI

Remind is a 2-way text based communication platform that helps colleges to reach and engage with their entire campus community—and build the student relationships that lead to better learning. The Remind LTI integration allows instructors to quickly send links to Canvas assignments along with over 20 connected applications, including Signup.com, Box, Google Drive, and Microsoft OneDrive—without ever leaving Canvas. For students on the go who don’t always log into Canvas and don’t have a smartphone, this allows instructors to send important resources and information that they can’t miss.
