Canvas Setup

  1. To configure Canvas Data 2, visit and log in with your administrator credentials. 
  2. In the left hand menu, click "Admin" and select "Developer Keys."

These need to be added to the IntelliBoard Pro connection. Steps are in the next section. If you are not ready to paste these credentials to IntelliBoard, save them in a secure location until ready.

  7. Click the +Add New Key button in the top left corner.
  8. Give the key a name and choose an expiration date.
  9. Under Key Type, choose “Institutional Use”, chose 1 year in the Expiry drop-down and click Save
    Note: While IntelliBoard is listed under the “Instructure Partner” choice, this will email us the keys directly and may delay setup over proceeding with the Institutional Use choice.
