Tools must be vetted

With this power comes increased risk. Student and instructor information flows between the LMS and the external tools. Some tools reach back into Canvas to create assignments, or to post grades. This tight integration exposes FGCU faculty and students to the risk of having their personal information compromised or having campus systems hacked.

To mitigate this risk, we vet external tools before adding them to FGCU Canvas. We evaluate each tool for security, FERPA compliance, ADA compliance, and legal responsibility, should a problem arise.
