The site below is not a comprehensive guide to use of the Canvas LMS, and our team can only assist with SWEAP integration. we are unable to provide support for any other aspect of D2L’s functionality. Screenshots are provided for illustrative purposes but may not exactly match your own system, particularly since navigation elements can vary depending on your version of the platform.

SWEAP is capable of integrating with the Canvas Learning Management system via the external apps feature. For privacy concerns SWEAP is designed to work without the explicit need to send name or student email to our system, however if the identified version of the curriculum instrument is selected, the names will not appear. SWEAP recognizes that every program is different, and we suggest that you consult with your institution’s IT policies and procedures.
