Embed activities in Canvas

While Poll Everywhere has Canvas integration to import class rosters and export gradebook reports, it does not have a built-in method to embed activities within Canvas. It is possible, however, to use the Module tool in Canvas to insert the activity’s webpage instead of the embed code. The steps below will walk you through the process.

Step 1: On your Activities page, click the title of the activity you want to embed.
