Adding Wixie to Canvas

Wixie can be added as an external tool in Canvas. As an external tool, teachers can search for and assign Wixie templates to students and student can submit work in Wixie to Canvas assignments.

This page has instructions for: Creating a Wixie developer key, adding a Wixie app, adding a Wixie template to an assignment, and how to add Wixie as an item in a course module.
