Portal Integrations extend the functionality of the Academic Toolbox (LMS) used at the University of Toronto. They add new tools and capabilities to the system. Integrations may allow access to vendor content, extend grading or assignment capabilities, or provide an alternative to existing services. New Integrations come out all the time and many faculty are interested in being able to use them within their courses. In order to use the extensions and alternate “apps” at UofT, they first need to go through an integration process.
