Engage - Reading eTexts on Engage

This document outlines how an instructor or student can access eTexts in Engage.

While mobile apps exist for iOS and Android we strongly recommend you use Engage with Firefox or Chrome in order to access all its features.

How can I open an eText on the Engage platform?

  1. Login to Canvas at: canvas.wisc.edu
  2. Select the Canvas course that is using an Engage eText.
  3. Select the Engage eText link in your course menu:

    Engage eText Canvas course link

    The link to the Engage eText tool may appear in a different location in your Canvas menu - for example further down the list.

  4. A new browser tab should open with Engage. If it does not, you may need to click the purple Launch Unizin Engagebutton that displays in Canvas:

    Click the purple "Launch Unizin Engage" button

We do not recommend that users bookmark the Engage eText directly as it is likely you will experience the issue described in Engage - Known Issue - Engage displays login information when going to a saved bookmark for eText. Instead login to Canvas as described above to access the course and Engage via the Engage eText course menu option.
