How to Access Quaver from Canvas

This article is directed towards teachers and students in districts that have Canvas SSO integrations with QuaverEd. Please note that a Canvas SSO integration with QuaverEd must be set up by you district IT administrator, following the instructions here.

Adding the QuaverEd app to a course

1. Sign into your district Canvas account. This is often linked from your district’s website.

Canvas login page

2. Navigate to the course you would like to add Quaver to. Then click the “+” icon in one of the modules for that course. (Note: You may have to add a module if none exist)

3. Select “External Tool” from the dropdown menu.

3. Select Quaver’s app from the list. Also be sure that the “Load in a new tab” option is checked. Finally, click “Add Item” and the QuaverEd app will be accessible to students in your course.

Note: If the QuaverEd app isn’t listed then your district IT will need to add the app for teacher use.

Accessing Quaver from a course (Teachers and Students)

1. Sign into your district Canvas account. This is often linked from your district’s website.

2. Find Quaver’s app in your course module, then click the Quaver app link. If the app is not available, it may need to be added to the course by a teacher.

If this is your first time accessing Quaver from Canvas, proceed to step 3. Otherwise, you can skip to step 5!

3. If this is your first time logging into Quaver from Canvas, you’ll likely see our Single Sign On account provisioning page. This page is important!

If you have created a Quaver account before (if you have a Quaver username and password), you should click YES. This will allow you to link your Canvas account to your existing Quaver account.

If you do not have a Quaver account yet, simply click No to auto-provision one here. Teachers, please note that if you choose No here, you will be starting with a fresh account in Quaver and will be prompted to enter an access code. If you click No on this page, skip to step 5!

4. Enter your QuaverName and password and click Submit to link your Canvas account to your pre-existing Quaver account.

Remember, this is asking you to identify a Quaver account you have already created in the past. You should not enter your Canvas account credentials or other district credentials here. If you have never created a Quaver account before, simply click Go Back and select No on step 3.
