Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Technology Pilots in Canvas

The Poorvu Center works with the campus community to initiate change and explore new technologies that improve the teaching and learning landscape at Yale. Multiple groups on-campus work to identify, test, and implement these technology solutions. Below is information about current pilots. For a complete list of approved external applicaitons in Canvas, please view the following guide.

Ed Discussion is a threaded discussion platform. It supports document and image upload, math equations, runnable code, embedded video, and image annotation. Posts can be private or anonymous, and student responses can be ‘endorsed’ by instructors.
The Qualtrics LTI is the bridge between Canvas and Qualtrics that allows instructors to deploy Qualtrics surveys in their Canvas course. This functionality will replace the Canvas "survey" quiz types when Canvas moves to the Canvas New Quiz tool.
