5. Click Authorize.

6. You now have the Canvas icon next to your name on the home page.

7. From the home page, select "Class Center," then select "Class Management." You will then select "Class Details" for any of your classes you need to connect to Canvas.

8. Select the button "Connect to Canvas." This creates a connection between your class in Canvas and your class in Progress Learning.

Ensure you have your classes built in Canvas first before clicking the button to connect classes. You can only connect Progress Learning classes to existing Canvas classes.
Students must follow the same steps (1-6) to connect their Progress Learning accounts with Canvas. This is important, or they will not see the Progress Learning assignments in their Canvas.
Students will need their account information in step #4, print student ID cards to help with this process. Learn more by clicking here:

9. Connect your students to Canvas within Progress Learning by going back into the class, and selecting "Student Mapping". On that matrix, you will see if any current students in the class. You will be given a list of students that are already existing and connected. The remaining students that do not have a name in the "Existing Student" column, have not have their accounts connected yet. Teachers will need to decide whether to create a new account for the unlisted students or connect that account to an existing user within Progress Learning by selecting "Create Students" or "Sync Existing Students".
