A recent update between how we use Canvas and SoftChalk has made a new tool, the “SoftChalk Link Selector“, easier to embed SoftChalk lessons into your Canvas courses.

What’s new about this tool?  

  1. For faculty: Link Selector makes it easier to place your SoftChalk Cloud content into your Canvas course. No more copy and paste. The Link Selector tool lets you browse your SoftChalk Cloud content from within your Canvas course. Just point and click to select the lessons to embed in your course. You can embed both scored (content that reports a grade into the Canvas gradebook) and unscored SoftChalk content.
  2. For students: Link Selector improves the display of embedded SoftChalk content in your Canvas course— embedded content displays in a more responsive way and enables a larger viewport for students to see and interact with the content.

For a quick look at how the new Link Selector tool works in Canvas, see these short videos:
