Classroom Salon (CS) provides many of the interactive, deep discussion management and analytics features not provided by Canvas. The two systems can be used in conjunction or CS can be used as a stand-alone tool if the goal is to get more student participation.
At the institutional level, Classroom Salon and Canvas are also working to integrate Canvas LMS and Classroom Salon platform through Learning Technologies Integration (LTI) standards. The first integration would enable the following.
1. Enable a salon link in canvas for any canvas course
2. Once enabled, the Salon will automatically create a salon and enroll all students
3. Anyone clicking a link on salon will not need to authenticate.
4. We will also provide a way for users to directly enter salon, even if they registered through canvas.
