COVID-19 Resources & Updates Learn More

You keep doing the teaching and learning part.

We'll cover the "making it easier for everyone" part.

Canvas is the learning platform that makes teaching and learning (and implementation and adoption and customer support and student success and bragging to your non-Canvas-using peers) easier.

Save time. Increase achievement. Find success.

(And while we're at it: Develop knowledge. Empower all. Open possibility.)

At Instructure, we believe learning is the world’s most powerful force for change. It develops knowledge, increases awareness, and opens the doors of opportunity. We believe (and aim to prove) that anything is possible and everyone is powerful. That’s why the Canvas Learning Platform is rooted in the science of learning—to help every student and teacher save time, increase achievement, and find success, among other things.

What is Instructure? (Besides a little tricky to pronounce)

We help people grow throughout their education and careers.

That includes Canvas, the learning platform that makes teaching and learning easier (and the reason you're on this site in the first place), and Bridge, the employee development solution for people-focused companies.

We're (our customers and mothers will attest) smart, creative, and passionate.

When you choose Canvas, you get more than just a learning platform. You get adopted into the Instructure family, which includes all the innovative technology and vibrant community mentioned above, but also best-in-class customer service. And we give out decent swag, if you ask nicely.
