To add web forms to your Canvas course, you’ll need to use the Iframe embed code. In your 123FormBuilder online form builder account, select the web forms you want to publish and go to the Get Code & PublishEmbed Code section. Copy the Iframe code and log into your Canvas Instructure teacher account.

Provide a title to your page and click on the HTML editor link on the top right side of the content area. Delete any existing HTML tag in the content and paste the Iframe code there.

Now, unless you have enabled the SSL connection to your web form, you’ll need to edit the code a bit. Look for the first line in the code:

src="https://www.123formbuilder.com/my-contact-form-username-xxxxxx.html" width="100%"..

Replace the value http:// with https:// as seen below:

src="https://www.123formbuilder.com/my-contact-form-username-xxxxxx.html" width="100%"..

Note: If you use a Platinum plan or higher on 123FormBuilder, you don’t need to change the code. Just enable the SSL connection to your web form under Connection Type in the Publish section. Paste the Iframe code in your Canvas page (HTML view) and save your changes. All form data will be saved in the Submissions section of your form, in your 123FormBuilder account.
