Canvas External Tools - How do I use McGraw-Hill Education Tools?

This article describes how students and instructors can leverage McGraw-Hill Education tools with Canvas.

About McGraw-Hill Education tools

McGraw-Hill Education provides a number of tools which integrate into Canvas. These tools allow instructors to integrate textbooks, learning modules and activities into their Canvas course. Many tools allow instructors to automatically or manually sync grades to the Canvasa Gradebook. To use MHE tools in Canvas, instructors must request for the tool to be activated. Students should contact their instructors or refer to their syllabus for information on what MHE tools are used for their course, and any associated costs.

McGraw-Hill Connect and SIMNet Deep Linking (Grade Passback)

Deep Linking McGraw-Hill Connect or SIMNet assignments in a Canvas course allows for full grade passback between McGraw-Hill Connect and SIMNet and the Canvas gradebook. Deploying Connect or SIMNet assignments to the associated Canvas course creates individual assignments and grade columns that populate with student grades after they have completed assignments in a Connect or SIMNet course.
