"It is really hard to integrate new teaching and learning tools into the campus online ecosystem in an agile fashion," said Tom Lewis, director of Academic and Collaborative Applications at the University of Washington, which will be piloting the App Center until InstructureCon. "The Canvas App Center not only makes this possible in a quick, secure, and effective manner, but it allows the UW to offer innovative new tools to faculty and students at a speed that rivals the consumer marketplace, a rare thing indeed for higher education."
Instructure will unveil Canvas App Center and make it immediately available to all its customers at its annual user conference, InstructureCon. In the meantime, anyone can integrate the apps into any learning management system manually through Instructure's open library of LTI extensions available at www.edu-apps.org.
