Third-Party Tool Status

What You Need to Know About the Third-Party Tool Request Process

Academic Liaisons for every School, College, and Branch Campus submitted their top five tools deemed necessary for academic instruction in their respective units. Third-party tool requests submitted were then reviewed for security and accessibility by the LMS Implementation Team. After the tool has passed a security and accessibility review or has appropriate exceptions on file, academic units will submit prerequisites, including a commitment to fund or implement the third-party tool for use by the academic unit. Testing will then be conducted by the academic unit to ensure the tool meets the pedagogical needs requested. If the tool yields satisfactory results and the procurement process is complete, the tool will then be installed in Canvas for use. 
 
At this time, we are approaching our first round of testing tools that were submitted by the Academic Liaisons in March 2021.
 
Once the first round of requested third-party tools have made their way through the full process and the LMS Implementation Teams review the process under the Canvas continuous improvement model, communication will follow to the campus community regarding subsequent request rounds.
