For the URL, enter the base URL of your Canvas site.  This would be the URL in the address bar after you are logged into Canvas up to the point of the first slash.  For example, if you login to Canvas and then see the URL: 

http://ec2-33-222-208-11.compute-1.amazonaws.com/login/canvas   in the address bar, you should use the base URL of http://ec2-33-222-208-11.compute-1.amazonaws.com.

 

After entering the values, click the Link button, then authorize the link with Canvas.

 

After the sync completes, the Canvas classes should now be visible on a new Canvas Classes tab in Classes.  They will be available for selection in Teacher Tools in the Selection box.
