e-Resources in Teaching: Adding e-resources to your LMS: Canvas

A quick introduction to integrating e-textbooks into the USU curriculum.


ETI recommends that e-resources (assigned e-books or e-articles) be linked on either the Canvas Syllabus page or on the modules page as an external link (Fig 1 & Fig 2). Please see "Additional Info" in sidebar for detailed instructions.

We also suggest that you include the permalink to the resource on the course syllabus file (i.e. .doc/.pdf).
