EquatIO, which is a game changer for math and science teachers and their students who want to create accessible (read aloud) digital math, now integrates with Canvas in two ways.

EquatIO LTI


With the Equatio LTI installed, inserting math and science items can be accomplished using the Rich Content Editor. Below are instructions how.

On the Equation window, create sophisticated math and science notation using one of the built-in tools (Equation Editor, LaTeX Editor, Graph Editor, Handwriting Recognition, Speech Input).

EquatIO Web Toolbar


In addition to the tools available with the EquatIO LTI, the EquatIO Web Toolbar also includes EquatIO Mobile, Insert mathspace, Screenshot Reader, STEM Tools, and Discoverability. And, the web toolbar works with New Quizzes! Below are instructions on how to use the web toolbar.

This will be a nice addition to Canvas. We are looking more and more into STEM classes for online education.

Excited for this to happen! Will this require a Texthelp Equatio paid subscription or will it work as it does on the web with teachers receiving free premium accounts and students having free accounts with fewer features?

The integration is distinct from the web offerings in that it is solely a domain-wide premium component. So, it must be installed on the whole domain and requires a domain-wide premium license.

Will this also work with Quizzes Next and Gauge?

Integrating with Gauge makes a lot of sense here.
