Limited Campus Support

These tools are available for use in Canvas. Instructional Design and Technology assists with enabling the tools in Canvas sites. Technical support for using the tool should be directed to the vendor or appropriate UMKC department. Instructors may add these tools to their Canvas sites on the Apps tab in the Settings page.
