Coming soon! EquatIO integration with Canvas.

13 5 2,920

I am very excited about the new EquatIO LTI plugin that will seamlessly integrate with Canvas. This new app will be a game changer for math and science teachers and their students who want to create accessible (read aloud) digital math right from the Rich Content Editor.

Here’s a quick preview of how it will work.


To get started, simply click on the EquatIO icon.


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).


Click INSERT MATH to add the equation to any announcement, assignment, discussion, content page, etc.

The EquatIO tool also works great in quizzes! Check out this quick video to see it in action.

The EquatIO integration with Canvas is expected to be available by the end of April, 2018. For more information about the EquatIO LTI plugin, please contact John McGowan.

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.
