Adding W.W. Norton links to individual assignments

In this tutorial, you will learn how to add links to individual W.W. Norton assignments(Chapter Quizzes, Listening Guides, etc) to Canvas assignments.

1. Create an assignment

Note: If you set up your Canvas course to link to individual Norton assignments, students will have to follow your link to each individual assignment in order for the grade information to be passed back to Canvas.
