DesignPLUS: Design Tools for Canvas

As of December 13, 2023, DesignPLUS is now available for all faculty and staff on Canvas.

The DesignPLUS Toolset

DesignPLUS for Canvas, created by Cidi Labs, is a toolset designed for instructional designers to more efficiently create robust, high-quality course templates and content to deliver a better student experience. DesignPLUS includes the Content Editor Toolbox, the Multi-Tool, and the Upload/Embed Image Tool.

Montclair State University has procured a site-wide license for DesignPLUS to make it available to all faculty on campus.  To receive access to the DesignPLUS toolset, please attend a DesignPLUS training session. If DesignPLUS has already been activated for your Canvas account, be sure to unhide it with the appropriate keyboard shortcut.
