Admin view of all apps added at the course level

Jump to solution

I'm asked a lot as a Canvas Admin whether anyone is using app "[insert any app]" that I know isn't activated on an account level. Since teachers are able to add apps at the course level, I have seen several apps being used that I didn't turn on for an account or globally. I'd like to be able to connect teachers to let them know who is using what, and where, and so I'm wondering: is there anywhere that I can get a comprehensive list of the apps that have been added to any course across Canvas? 

Thanks for any help!

Hello 18shumwaysam Welcome to the Canvas Community.  Thanks for posting your question.  Yup...there sure is!  If you sign in to Canvas with your admin account, go to the "Admin" button and then click on your account name.  Next, click on "Settings".  Next, click on the "Reports" tab.  You should see a report near the top called "LTI Report".  Click on the "Configure..." button for that row, and then you'll be able to run a report.  If you click on the "?" immediately to the right of the words "LTI Report", you'll see an example of what the report will look like.  Here is more information for you: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12627-421480121 

I hope this helps, Sam.  Please let the Community know if you have any other questions about this.

Just be aware that, depending on how the LTI placement has been made, the LTI report may not show you what you are expecting.

See, for example:

Thanks pklove. Those articles are insightful for my particular case! I'm trying to track down the total use of certain LTI's, and knowing where to look to get the most accurate count is really important.
