Use of Canvas by the Ivy League Schools

In my last post, I looked at the use of Canvas Instructure by the non-Ivy schools (Stanford and Univerity of Indiana) listed next to the Used by 7 Ivy League Schools label on Canvas Instructure’s Investor Presentation. According to its homepage, INSTRUCTURE makes software that makes people smarter. In this post, I search for evidence of the level of use of Canvas by the featured Ivy League schools and whether it is making anyone smarter at these schools.

Am I next-gen enough to use Canvas Instructure?

Are you like me, one of the 80% of faculty that are satisfied with SSU’s current LMS, Moodle? Surprised that we are rushing to adopt Canvas Instructure, the next-gen LMS, when you don’t even know what next-gen means in this context? A bit of background, in Nov 2017, I suspected that I might already be last-gen since I’d never heard of Canvas Instructure. I researched whether I could fit in with the next-geners.
