Then, add the app you have configured to your course module.

Under modules, click "+" to add an item, and chose "External Tool" from the dropdown. You will see your new app on the list of options.

Be sure to check the box to "Load in a new tab."

You're all set!

Students will now only have to remember their Canvas login to access Scholastic.

Once enabled, this will send students directly into your magazine website when they log into your Canvas course.

Updates to your class roster will sync automatically throughout the year.

Administrators, please note: 

The only roles we support are faculty, instructor, staff, student, learner, prospective student and alumni.

If your user role designates you as an administrator, you will not be able to launch the Scholastic module and will receive an error message. Try impersonating one of your teachers and then you should be able to launch Scholastic from your LMS.
