Revently Avila University activated an number of external tools for faculty and student use. Tools are accessible through the blue V button in the rich text editor for any Canvas content item like pages, assignments, announcements, and discussions.
For example you can embed in your content an interactive Google map of any location in the world as shown here. While we have not tested all of these tools, we have activated them for faculty interested in trying these innovations in their courses. Please contact the Center for Transformational Learning if you would like help in using the tools pedagogically.
