Champlain College developed a Course Analysis Tool to be used in our QA process for online courses. The tool is built entirely on top of Google Spreadsheets and pulls data directly from Canvas via the API. We will present the features of the tool and share it with participants.

This looks like a great tool. One of the things a few of our faculty have said that they missed when our college switched from Blackboard to Canvas was the link checker tool. I am going to spend some time testing this and see if it would be a viable option for those faculty members who would like to have such a resource.
email@example.com to do this one could list the body/ description of all assignments, quizzes, pages, discussion prompts. This could be done via Canvas Data or I believe also the API. For example, under Assignments API there is description field. Assignments - Canvas LMS REST API Documentation Perhaps run the API to GET the Assignment title and description. Once the HTML code is listed out in Excel format then it is possible to copy/ paste that text to a URL extractor such as : Extract URLs (We started to write a macro for this however found it easier to use an existing resource). Then export the file and sort/ remove duplicates in Excel. Voila! A list is created.
I speculate there are more creative ways to do this however the above is this end user's solution. ;o)
