Making it work: Using Gravity Forms and URL parameters with Pardot and Canvas

We’ve been working with MIIS to get a non-credit course going in Canvas through Catalog.1 It’s been interesting to see what works smoothly and what does not. We have a couple major systems that sort of work together but are requiring different paths for exceptions. We’ve got a nice path for non-Middlebury people to sign […]
