Would you like to view your current Canvas courses directly from myHilltop? The integration of Canvas with myHilltop gives you the ability to see your Canvas dashboard courses on your myHilltop homepage.


After logging in to myHilltop, you can choose to authorize an integration with Canvas — via the Canvas Connector — that will display all of your current courses directly on your myHilltop homepage. 

After you authorize the connection, your Canvas courses will appear at the top of your homepage as individual tiles, roughly half the width of normal myHilltop task tiles. Clicking a course from myHilltop directs you to the homepage of that course in Canvas.
