Canvas LMS - Integration

Modified on Tue, 02 Aug 2022 at 03:31 PM



There is the possibility to connect Canvas LMS with Eduframe. During the implementation of Eduframe and/or Canvas, the Drieam consultant will support with setting up this integration. But there are also some things that you can set up yourself. 

How do I enable the plugin?

If you go to Settings > Plugins, you can enable the canvas plugin. There are also some other steps you have to take into the Canvas environment. You need some support from Drieam. 

How do I set up? 

At the Canvas plugin (Settings > Plugins) you will find general information about Canvas: With the Canvas open source learning environment you can easily develop blended or online training. The seamless integration with EduFrame and your website ensures that students have direct access to the learning environment.

Next to the general information you can also do a hard sync or you can define the course names and configure teacher roles. 

  • Teacher Role (Default)

    In Eduframe you have a standard teacher role. This role is default connected to the teacher role in Canvas. You don't have to set up everything if the tab teacher roles isn't enabled in your Eduframe environment. If you want to create different teacher roles in Canvas, you can also enable this in Eduframe. See the next part how to set this up: 

  • Teacher Roles

    In Eduframe you can create teacher roles. They will have the same permissions, but another name. You can find more about that in the Teacher Roles article. These Eduframe teacher roles can be connected to custom roles in Canvas. The course roles that you want to fill in here and connect with Eduframe must have the exact same name as in Canvas is registered. You can find this information in Canvas as an admin under Permissions.
    When they are filled in and saved, a teacher role in Eduframe is connected to a role in Canvas automatically.
  • Course name

    Eduframe will push the name of the course template and other things through to Canvas. In the plugin settings tab you can define what will be part of the name of the planned course. You can choose between or additional: startdate, location, variant, course name (template name)
  • Other

    There are four other options you can enable or disable.
