External Apps are 3rd party applications that have been designed to integrate directly into the Canvas Learning Management System. The apps, commonly called LTI Tools, are often based on the Learning Tools Interoperable (LTI) framework.
Below is a list of external apps currently supported at UNC. Most of the supported apps are already pre-configured for use in every course.

New External App requests are initially reviewed by the Instructional Design and Information Technology (IDIT) committee. A request is evaluated based on criteria including pedagogy, function, accessibility and cost. IDIT then depending on the scale of the request, recommends a final decision to the Learning Management System Advisory Group (LMSAG). The LMSAG will approve or disapprove the integration for use university wide.
