External Apps Supported in FSU's Canvas

FSU supports the use of a variety of external applications that enhance both the teaching and learning experience. There are a few different ways you and your students can access external tools in your course site. Find out more below about how these applications function, where you need to go to view these apps, and how they can be installed in your course.

External Apps: What's their Function?

A quick breakdown of the ways that the most popular external apps we support function:

Accessibility Tools

Bb Ally can help you ensure that your course content is accessible to all users, including checking your Microsoft Word documents and PDF files and making recommendations to make your course files more accessible. CiDi Labs Design Tools can help you to create accessible content within Canvas, but is much more limited than Bb Ally. Bb Ally is solely focused on accessibility, whereas Design Tools is focused on page design and incorporates accessibility into Canvas page design at the same time.

Course Design Tools

CiDi Labs Design Tools can help you to improve both the design and accessibility of your Canvas course. You can even create a great course syllabus that will automatically update the institutional policies for you each semester!

In-Class Polling

iClicker is our most popular polling tool at FSU with two different product options available to meet your needs: iClicker Classic and iClicker Cloud. You can also use Top Hat in some similar ways to administer class attendance, quizzes, and more from your students' smartphones.

Video Hosting

Kaltura is the ideal tool to use because it allows you to create and share an unlimited amount of video and audio recordings in Canvas. Added bonus: Kaltura captions your media items automatically, giving your students closed captions and transcripts for the videos you create.

Plagiarism Checking

Turnitin is a top-ranked plagiarism deterrent service that integrates with Canvas so you can ensure that you students are submitting their own work and citing their sources appropriately.

Web Conferencing

Zoom Web-conferencing is robust and offers you and your students many options for synchronous interaction. Canvas's built-in web-conferencing tool, Canvas Conferences, is also available for use but will not allow you to retain a recording of your conference for more than 14 days and does not allow you to easily invite non-FSU users to a conferencing session.
