Please work with Canvas to make SmartMusic one of it's LTI partners, so I can assign and grade SmartMusic assignments from within Canvas.

    Is there a code to make this happen now?

    I am very interested in this as well. It would make grading and creating accounts so much easier and streamlined.

    I'd like to see this integration soon very much!! This added feature will certainly attract more school districts to approve Smart Music!

    I would really like to see an answer for this sooner than later as it will determine if we purchase SmartMusic for use in the fall, or whether we go with another program like Noteflight that is already integrated.

    My district is in the same situation as many others. Because of distance learning, they may be willing to put out money for this, but we are required to go through Canvas. Anyway, if we can get some syncing with Canvas would be so helpful! 

    Here is where I made a feature request for Canvas to encourage collaboration between platforms: https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/16945-smartmusic-sync-grades-and-assignments-in-smartmusic?commentID=165882&et=notification.mention#comment-165882 

    Here are some ways I would like SmartMusic to integrate with Canvas:

    • Creating accounts
    • Auto-syncing grades to assignments in Canvas (which already links to PowerSchool)- instead of typing each grade in.
    • Linking assignments from Canvas to SmartMusic (being able to click on a link from Canvas and take you to your SmartMusic assignment)

    The concern with not having this feature are many faceted by myself and the administration at my school.

    1. We can't email reminders about assignments from SmartMusic from SmartMusic. We also can't easily email grade reports to students. 
    2. Parents can see grades where all of their class grades are until the teacher types it in. The parents will not go to SmartMusic to check, which reduces support of completion of assignments.
    3. It is cumbersome to find grades in the assignments that are autograded because there is no notification (unless you turn off auto grading)
    4. Without this integration, administration and district are not likely to support this very valuable resource and therefore music education programs during distance learning. We can use all we can get to support our jobs.

    Very concerned that schools wont buy into SmartMusic if it doesnt integrate with Canvas. This would make it easier for all to use ......students and teachers!!

    My school is looking at canvas and I am hoping that the LTI integration is in the works

    Please integrate with Canvas.  I am helping our music teacher right now, and if SmartMusic would integrate it would be beneficial to them as well.  I am not seeing much as far as LTIs for music in Canvas.

    My music supervisor is asking our district for 50k to have smartmusic for all secondary music teachers AND students. Being able to integrate with canvas would go a long way in this big ask.

    There is a voting option to tell canvas to try to create the LTI with Smartmusic.  Please go in and vote to tell them to do the integration:

    Please work with Canvas to make SmartMusic one of its LTI partners, so music teachers can grade SmartMusic assignments from within Canvas.  This may make the difference between our district purchasing SmartMusic or not. Thank you for working toward this integration!

    With many school divisions going virtual for at least a portion, it would benefit SO MANY of us to have these two platforms working together!  More school districts would be open to purchasing a SmartMusic subscription if it was able to tie in with Canvas!

    This would be an AMAZING and welcome LTI integration! Definitely more people would buy SM subs if this integration was possible.

    I agree - please make SmartMusic integrate with Canvas!  There are many of us who would volunteer to be Beta testers.  

    I am currently comparing SmartMusic, SightReadingFactory, and perhaps some other programs.  I am super interested in SmartMusic as it has both sightreading and literature integration.  However, SightReadingFactory has easy and immediate integration into Canvas.  That almost makes the decision for me.  

    Please consider integrating!  We´d love to hear back from you, SM!!!

    Has there been any progress on integrating SmartMusic with Canvas? I'm also evaluating and comparing SmartMusic with other products and LTI integration is high on the list of desirable features.

    Can you give us some hope, SM? Are you working on this at all?

    Our school district has just instituted canvas for our classes.  I also would love smartmusic to be one of the LTI apps available to like with canvas.  Please keep me informed if this becomes an option.

    Yes, please!  I'm using Canvas during distance learning and beyond.  I'd love to be able to integrate SmartMusic as an app on Canvas so that assignments are more streamlined.  Sometimes the students are confused about what is due exactly and when because they're getting different assignments from each platform.

    Please make this happen Smart Music!  I would be much more willing to use this every year.  This year is the 1st year we've done smart music and so far I see the value.

    Please integrate Smart Music with Canvas as soon as possible. This is a huge dealbreaker.
