In most cases, it is beneficial to integrate salon with a course management system (like canvas), so students can go to one place to start navigating the course. If you are using Canvas as your course management system, please follow the instructions below.
IMPORTANT: Do not create a Salon from Classroom Salon if you are going to integrate salon and canvas. Canvas will automatically create a salon for you.
Here are the steps
1. Create or request a Canvas course
2. Go to your canvas course.
3. Click “Settings” tab in left side menu.
4. Click “Apps” tab in upper tab list.
5. Click “View App Configurations” button in middle right corner.
6. Click “+App” Button.

In the Canvas instructor view, refresh the screen and when you click on “Classroom Salon” on the left side menu, you should see an introductory
video and underneath “Upload Media”. Click on that and you will be automatically placed in a salon created for the course. Your students are already enrolled in salon as well.
There is no need for students to create new salon accounts, and they access salon via canvas.
