Features & Third Party Tools

What Tools are available?


Open Canvas does not have all the same features and third-party tools as Penn Canvas. The only available third-party tool integrations are Panopto and Study.net.

Only the Health Care Innovation and Ethics and Policy Online program has access to Study.net in Open Canvas.


The free version of Poll Everywhere can be used in Open Canvas Canvas sites. For more information, please see the pricing model for Poll Everywhere. There are also many options for embedding material. Solutions to a third party tool will be discussed during your consultation with the Online Learning Support Librarian.


Open Canvas is an evolving Canvas instance at Penn. If you’re interested in incorporating a third-party tool in your Open Canvas site, please send an email to:

 lib-opencanvas@pobox.upenn.edu with your request.
