It is possible to link directly to Evolve resources from your Canvas course using Evolve link. You need to create an Evolve account, request access to the resource, and create the link.

**Please note** you will not be able to view the content as it appears to the student when you are in student view since you will not have the proper Evolve credentials to access the content.

**Please note** the student must purchase access to the resource in order to view the content.
