Has anyone tried integrating a Flipboard magazine into your course?
I've been using Flipboard with my Canvas courses for over two years. The results are fantastic! I create specific magazines for each of my courses and students use the content to further discussions. My students also participate as active Flipboard contributors.
The simplest method for adding a Flipboard magazine to your Canvas course is to use the "Redirect" app and place the Flipboard button in the course navigation... The standard placement for my Flipboard button is directly below the "Home" button in the course navigation.
In March of 2015, Flipboard redesigned the Internet version of the application. Consequently, Flipboard magazines can no longer be embedded in a page using a standard <iframe> tag. In addition, the web version of the magazine no longer uses the "page-flip" design (this is still available in the mobile version), despite my request they revert to that feature. The new web look is more like Pinterest.
It is important, as your magazine grows to share a few important tips with your students/users:
I hope this helps,
I have not but if you give me an example of one I'll see if it can be embedded.
I love this idea! Flipboard is amazing...I have it on my iPad. I did a quick search here on the Canvas Community, and there wasn't any Feature Idea related to a Flipboard integration (via LTI). If you added it as a Feature Idea, it would be available for voting the middle of next week. Canvas Feature Ideas
I'm also interested in seeing what Adam Williams might be able to do with this. Maybe it's as easy as an iframe? Who knows.
Jeremy, were you able to figure something out? If not, please let us know and provide an example of one and we can try to help!
I have seen this done and it is amazing! I'm going to share this question with the instructor that did it and hopefully he will come share his brilliance!
Brilliance Mark! Thank you for sharing!!!
Thanks for all the info - haven't been back on the forums due to the summer semester ending and the fall semester starting. I will have to float the redirect tool by our Dean and see what she thinks.
Hopefully I can show her the benefits of Flipboard.
