Canvas's Redirect Tool is approved for use within the Digital Learning Environment. Add links to external web resources that show up as navigation items in course, user, or account navigation. Whatever URL you specify is loaded within the content pane when users click the link. The Redirect Tool limits the number of clicks needed for students to find the most used resources. To configure this app you specify the text and URL you’d like to add to navigation elements in the LMS, then check the areas you’d like it added to. User navigation will only appear if this app is installed at the root level so contact your institutional Canvas administrator for more information.
Free. Interested faculty and staff should contact their institutional admin if they are interested in using this tool.
Not Applicable: this app simply redirects the launching user to the URL selected by whoever configures the tool.
