Office 365: Integrating with Canvas – Innovate your teaching in Canvas by integrating the Office365 learning tool in your course. This learning tool integration (LTI) allows students and instructors to create, share, and collaborate on O365 files within Canvas. During this one-hour demonstration session, participants will learn how to add the O365 LTI to their course and will explore how to update their content and assignments by adding OneDrive files.  (Dawson 213A computer lab)
