INNOVATION IN THE HANDS OF EDUCATORS

WHY FURTHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS ARE SWITCHING TO CANVAS

Adoption, innovation & student experience

As demand grows for skills-based education, so does the need for engaging face-to-face and distance learning experiences that do more to prepare students for the workforce. That's why thousands of institutions have moved to the forefront of innovation by switching to the Canvas VLE. And they're not just switching—they’re staying with Canvas.

ADOPTION

The VLE teachers & students actually want to use

Canvas was built on the idea that teaching and learning get easier when your VLE gets simpler. It’s the simplicity of Canvas—with its intuitive user interface and native-cloud reliability—that increases campus-wide adoption for learning institutions of every kind.

“We have a 97% adoption rate in the first year. It took us more than a decade to reach this rate with our old system.”

—James Wells, Head of Digital Curriculum, Middlesbrough College

INNOVATION

Unique & engaging learning experiences

With open architecture and flexible tools designed for modern teaching and learning, Canvas puts innovation front and centre, so your VLE will be a collaborative digital hub that empowers student success—and never just a file repository.

“We really wanted to ignite the next level of innovation—and we found Canvas. Since we've taken it on, we haven't looked back.”

—Paul Rolfe, Director of IT, Highbury College

STUDENT EXPERIENCE

How to futureproof your offerings

Canvas provides a student-centred learning environment that simplifies technology for students of all ages and technical abilities, while also appealing to digital natives, who rely on Canvas mobile apps, integrated social media and third-party plugins to “own” their learning.

“Our tech-savvy student base demands a great user experience across platforms and the complete flexibility to access materials whenever and however suits. Only Canvas could provide this.”

—Ben Sweetman, Business Development Director, QA Apprenticeships
