New Options in UCI Canvas

In collaboration with the Office of the Vice Provost of Teaching and Learning (OVPTL), the Office of Information Technology (OIT) has worked to streamline the process for reviewing and implementing new third party UCI Canvas integrations. Because of those efforts, several new ones are available this quarter:

  • Pearson – MyLab & Mastering
  • Pearson – Revel
  • Cengage – MindTap
  • McGraw-Hill – Connect
  • Gradescope (in pilot; see below)

The publisher integrations help students access textbook content and course activities directly from Canvas, and they can pass assignment grades back into the Canvas gradebook.

Gradescope is an assignment grading utility created by graduate students at UC Berkeley. We’re piloting it for the rest of this academic year to assess its usability and value. There will be a web demo on January 16.
