Instructure Releases Canvas App Center

Press Release

June 21, 2013

Park City — Instructure released its all-new Canvas App Center with more than 100 educational apps today at InstructureCon 2013. The App Center is immediately available in the cloud to educational institutions using Canvas as their learning management system. The App Center allows individual teachers, administrators and students to install third-party apps on the Canvas platform. Instructure also announced winners of the LTI App Bounty, in which representatives from Blackboard, Desire2Learn, IMS Global Learning Consortium and Hack Education participated as judges.

"The Canvas App Center opens the door of possibilities for educators to build awesome learning experiences with the technology they want to use," said Brian Whitmer, co-founder and chief product officer at Instructure. "The learning management system needs to get out of the way of teaching. We built Canvas to be flexible, and the new app center makes it easy for teachers and students to use technology they're already familiar with and to experiment with new tools."

To encourage the development of a stronger app ecosystem for education, Instructure created an LTI App Bounty, which offers a $250 reward for each qualifying LTI app, plus an additional $1,000 for the best apps selected by the expert panel of judges.

As a result, 25 apps were submitted and the top eight winners were announced at InstructureCon 2013. The winners include:

  • AspirEDU - Aspire Analytics
  • Ayamel
  • BigBlueButton
  • CloudTime
  • Code Embed
  • QuestionPress
  • StudyRoom
  • Tandem
