Partner Webinar: Connecting an Online Testing & Assessment System with Canvas



Integrating Maple T.A., Maplesoft’s online testing and assessment tool, with a course management system allows instructors and students to move freely between the two environments without having to log in separately. Maplesoft supports the Learning Tools Interoperability® (LTI) standard, which allows connectivity between Maple T.A. and learning management systems such as Canvas. Instructors can now access the power of Maple T.A. from within the environment they are using to manage other aspects of their course. It also provides a single location to access all assignments, and a consolidated gradebook so all marks are available in one place.


In this webinar, Maplesoft will discuss and demonstrate how users can take full advantage of the power of Maple T.A. from within the Canvas environment. You will also hear how the University of Birmingham’s College of Engineering and Physical Sciences benefited from using the LTI Connector to integrate Maple T.A. into their curriculum within the Canvas LMS.


About Maple T.A.:
Maple T.A. is a powerful online testing and assessment system designed especially for courses involving mathematics. Its unparalleled abilities allow instructors to truly assess student understanding of math-based concepts, making it ideal for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses.
