Embedding our resources in Canvas


Collections, Learning and Research (CLR) provide a series of ready-made SkillsGuides for use in Canvas. SkillsGuides content covers:

  • Study & learning
  • Writing & assessment
  • Research
  • Technology & software

SkillsGuides are delivered by our LibGuides system which seamlessly embeds the requested content into the modules area of your Canvas course. You can embed a whole guide or just a single page making this a very quick and flexible way to bring content into Canvas. Full instructions on how to do this are shown in the video on this page.
