Hi there,

I am new to Commons and was trying to set up a New Quiz in Commons but was not able to figure out how to get the quiz to appear in the preview window. I see the "External Tool Content Can't Be Previewed" message but was wondering if there was a way to work around this.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi @erooks1 

New Quizzes is an LTI application that must be made available to your Canvas account by your school, and enabled in your Canvas classrooms. If you have New Quizzes active in one of your Canvas Classroom, then you can preview a New Canvas Quiz by downloading it to that classroom and opening it for preview.

Because Canvas Commons is not Canvas LMS, the New Quizzes LTI cannot be installed in the Commons.
