Please schedule a time with eLearning if you would like additional training on how to use this tool.
Setting Up the Tool
Before you can use the Multi-Tool, you must add it to navigation menu in your Canvas course. By default, the Multi-Tool is hidden because it is typically used when setting up a course. Students will not see the Multi-Tool in their view even after you enable it.
To add the Multi-Tool, follow these steps:
- On the course navigation menu, click Settings.
- On the Settings page, click the Navigation tab.
- On the Navigation tab, enable the Multi-Tool or drag it from the list of hidden items (on the bottom) to the list of available items.
- Click Save.
The first time that you use it in any of your courses, the Multi-Tool prompts you to authorize access to your account.
