I know there is an integration of Microsoft Office 365 with Canvas for documents, collaboration, etc. Does anyone know if it is possible to have a link in a Canvas course to our Office 365 Teams Chat?
Tammy, I was able to get some more information about this here: Partner Day Keynote: Come on In, We're Open in the comments. (not much, but we should see more soon?)
Thanks Tommy ... we especially want to have the Teams chat integrated.
I just asked about this also, and was told that Canvas and Microsoft have only just begun discussions, so not to expect anything for some time, maybe later this year, early next year.
I'm hoping it'll help fill in some of the gaps with group functionality we're finding.
In case you missed it, microsoft teams integration with Canvas was mentioned at canvascon this year (2019). So it looks like it is in the works. Can’t wait to see what they come up with.
The Office365 integration also seems to be a bit more responsive. I notice that I can link to ANY file in the OneDrive - in the past it was just Word, Excel, PowerPoint.
PDFs embed on the page but videos require to be open in a new window
This would be welcomed although I'd like to see the following in place before then:
Looks like Moodle and Blackboard already have a Teams integration. LTI
I had a vendor send me a link for their product and as I began to look at it, it said it integrated with Blackboard and Canvas, but their app was performing similar functions of MS Teams. The problem was that the vendor's product already knew how to create Teams groups for the Canvas courses, not that it worked better than Teams.
Myles Carrick, any update you can give on this?
Is there any roadmap/timeline you can share?
