All links to Digital Resource content will be available by contacting W.W. Norton directly.

5. Decide how to incorporate Norton Digital Resources

Now that you have linked your Canvas course with Norton's Digital Resources, you will have to decide how you would like to incorporate these resources.

Option #1 - Assignment categories

                  You can link from a single Canvas assignment to an entire category of

                  Norton assignments (e.g. Listening Guides, Chapter Quizzes)

Option #2 - Individual assignments

                  You can use the links from individual Norton assignments to create

                  assignments in Canvas

Option #3 - Simple link

                 Use this option if you just want to redirect students to the Norton

                 Digital Resources page without linking to Canvas for grading.

                 If you want to use this option, you are already done!
