Learning Objects for Teaching Information Literacy

Adding Credo InfoLit Content to Canvas

Material in Instruct can be added to USF's learning management system, Canvas. Students will be able to access the material directly from Canvas, with no need for any extra log-in information. When they take an Instruct test or quiz via Canvas, their grade will sync directly to the Canvas Gradebook.

You will use what are called "LTI links" to add Instruct material to your class. Below are instructions for embedding material in Canvas, as well as the LTI links you can choose from.
