LMS Integration

Elsevier Evolve offers a Canvas integration, which allows users to access Elsevier Evolve resources directly from their Canvas course. The integration also offers the option to have both systems, Canvas and Elsevier Evolve, synchronize grades automatically, so that the Canvas gradebook gets updated when students complete assignments within Elsevier Evolve.

UNF has a campus-wide license, so any instructor may use the Elsevier Evolve Link in their course. The tool is already installed in Canvas and can only be used as an External Tool for Canvas Modules and Assignments.

In order to use the Elsevier Evolve Link inside of Canvas, faculty will need to create a faculty account.
