Integrating Actively Learn with Canvas allows teachers to sync grades, rosters, and classes. Teachers will be able to easily manage their class rosters in Canvas and sync changes to Actively Learn.
Important: Please have your district Canvas administrator contact our team to get started with connecting Actively Learn and Canvas. If you or your students do not see the Actively Learn selection in your Canvas accounts, you will need to contact the Canvas admins at your school to have it added.
