Desmos Classroom Activity LTI

Desmos Classroom Activity LTI

Desmos classroom activities are amazing ways for educators to help their students connect mathematical ideas and concepts into reality, and allow them to manipulate data and visualize the concepts that they are learning. Desmos Activities are a great way to host interactive notes in the classroom as well as a fun way to make cardsort or graph based assignments. 

It would be incredible if Desmos Classroom Activities was a LTI partner where teachers could assign an activity to a canvas class, and have the students log in only with canvas, submit the assignment, and then have it show up on teachers SpeedGrader tool. This would also give students the ability to complete & come back to their work in a Desmos activity without having to leave the canvas site or sign in with google.

Thanks for sharing this idea. As it moves forward for broader consideration, you might also be interested in joining the conversation at https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/9779-desmos-graphing-calculator-integration

Thank you! I did upvote the other topic in which you mentioned, however - they are 2 different parts of the Desmos tool.
The aforementioned idea just speaks of the Desmos graphing curator which is a great and functional calculator that would be nice to have embedded. This calculator can be found by going to Desmos.com.

My idea takes it one step further to Desmos classroom activities which can be accessed at teacher.desmos.com and has some extremely awesome capabilities. 

in summary, though the ideas are similar and invoke the same brand, Desmos classroom activities is different

Yes please! I've been asked Desmos for this for a long time now!

Surveyor

Yes, please! Desmos activities would be a perfect addition to Canvas. Currently, you can embed an activity in an assignment, but students cannot sign in to save their work when it is embedded.

Surveyor

This is so important! It is vital that students are able to sign in to Desmos so that we can view and track their progress!

@thms7M @jdriver78 @sisakr and everyone else, we also have to be pushing Desmos about this on their end as well!

@bcrook I just sent them an email, thanks for suggesting! Any other ideas how we can bring this specific issue to the attention of Canvas?

I want this too!  How do I "upvote" it?

I would love to have an LTI for Desmos.
