Mapping an Activity from the Möbius Portal to your Canvas Course

Activity mapping allows users to create an LTI link that takes a user directly into a Möbius assignment or lesson.

Each graded Möbius activity needs to be associated with an item in your Canvas gradebook in order to push grades from Möbius to Canvas.

The student must then launch the activity from these activity links in order for the grades to be pushed; student grades are pushed to the Canvas upon completion of the activity.

Note: The student's attempt must be submitted by clicking Submit Assignment and all questions must be fully graded for the grade to be pushed to your Canvas gradebook. If the activity has questions requiring manual grading, the grade won't be pushed until the instructor has completed the manual grading of those questions.

It is recommended to only use activity and Gradebook links. This will disable users from accessing activities via other link types, as these types won't push grades to Canvas. Individual links must be created for each Möbius activity so that each one appears in the Canvas gradebook.

To Map to an Activity

1. Select the class that contains the activity you want to link to from the drop-down list of your available classes.
