How do I link my Grok course to my Canvas course?

Canvas courses can link to Grok material through our support of the LTI interface.

Linking your Grok CourseModules to Modules, Assignments, or Quizzes in Canvas is a three step process:

  1. Install the Grok Learning EduApp
  2. Attach the Grok app to your Canvas objects
  3. Choose a target CourseModule for your LTI links

Step 1. Install the Grok Learning EduApp

Depending on your permissions in Canvas, you might not have the ability to install a new external app. If this is the case, you will need to provide these pieces of information to your local Canvas Administrator so can install the app for you.

On the Canvas course, click on "Settings", then "Apps", then select the Grok Learning app:

Click Add App to install:

Finally, click Add App to install the Grok Learning external tool:

Step 2. Attach the Grok app to your Canvas objects

Once you've installed the Grok Learning app, you need to link each of your Canvas resources (Assignments, Quizzes, etc.) to the appropriate Grok CourseModule.
