Embed Digital Library Content in Canvas
- The first step is to build your reading list, then the second step is to enable it within your Canvas course modules using the SLCC Library Curriculum Builder tool (EBSCOHost) http://libguides.slcc.edu/canvas
- The Curriculum Builder LTI tool is already in Canvas navigation and can be activated in the Course Navigation menu. See the Canvas Guide How do I re-order and hide navigation links?
- Step-by-step instructions for connecting your reading list in Canvas Modules: LibWebTutorial featuring Guide on the Side
- Please see related HelpDocs for detailed steps on locating OER videos/media and embedding Kaltura videos, Films on Demand, or Kanopy.

Additional Options for Links and PlacementThe Rich Content Editor info box in Canvas pages or assignments and allows you to add a variety of elements to a Canvas page; text, images, videos, links to outside websites, etc. So you can link the correct URL in any Canvas page, or use share/embed codes, or also use approved LTI tools where they exist. (Currently not one for Kanopy, but one is already in place for EBSCO and Films on Demand.)
See Canvas Guides List for Rich Content Editor and this short video tutorial.
