Publishing and Promoting Your Book

28 Integrate your book into Canvas

There are a couple of ways you can put Pressbooks content into your Canvas course page. The easiest way is to simply copy the link for a book or a specific chapter and put that link into a Canvas module or page. Students will then be able to click the link(s) to open a specific book or chapter outside of Canvas.

There is also a way to more fully integrate your book by importing the content directly into your Canvas course. This is done by using the Common Cartridge (Web-links) 1.1 option in the Export menu for your book. The content of your book will then display within your Canvas course, giving students a more seamless experience and keeping them in your course site.

Please see the complete instructions for integrating your book into Canvas using Common Cartridge Files with Web Links on the Pressbooks User Guide.
