Instructure, the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company and founder of learning management system (LMS), Canvas, has signed four new customers across Asia-Pacific.
The solution has been implemented by SCEGGS Darlinghurst in Sydney, The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, SIM University in Singapore and University of Auckland in New Zealand.
SCEGGS Darlinghurst said it chose Canvas due to the platform’s solid feature set, user experience and manageability. It plans to roll out the solution in May 2016.
The University of Auckland said the system would integrate successfully with external tools and applications that the faculty use as well as working across operating systems and devices that students expect to use in conjunction with learning.
For The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, implementing Canvas was a key part of its 10-year strategic digital transformation project to improve operational efficiency and enrich educational opportunity.
As a result, Canvas has more than doubled its staff headcount within customer satisfaction, sales and marketing across APAC within the last 12 months.
“We’ve seen how progressive Asia-Pacific can be when it comes to driving innovation in education and student-centred learning, and Canvas is uniquely placed to facilitate that transition towards a digital teaching model,” Canvas director for APAC, Troy Martin, said.
“The success that Canvas has seen over the past 12 months in the APAC region indicates that there is a growing and real need for cutting edge technology that becomes an enabler, allowing the institutions we work with to deliver the best and most compelling learning experience possible.”
