We had several faculty doing this in D2L, and I’m pleased to say that it’s MUCH easier in Canvas.
Canvas: Embed a Twitter Widget onto the Home Page
1. From your course, select “Settings,” and then “Apps.”
4. From the “Rich Content Editor,” select the “V” drop down. Then choose “Twitter.” A dialogue box will appear. This will allow you to either insert a widget that tracks an individual Twitter account (@____) OR a hashtag (#).
