As noted earlier, the Canvas admin can add the Macmillan Higher Education external app to just a single course or to all the courses in a Canvas account. Once added, the instructor can access the Macmillan app from the course navigation panel (left nav), by using the ‘Add item’ function in a Canvas module, or by using the Canvas rich content editor.
