External Apps: Quizlet

Within Canvas, there is an LTI for Quizlet. Currently the LTI functionality is not working as intended and searching for your personal Quizlets is difficult. The purpose of this article is to provide a work around to embed your Quizlets into a Canvas Page.  This will not sync the student's results with the gradebook.
