Have you ever been in the middle of your lesson planning and thought to yourself, “I really wish there was an easy way to find a social learning tool that worked well with Canvas,” or “Gosh, my students have produced some amazing work this semester. I wish I knew what e-portfolio options were available out there”? Well, we hear you, and we want to do everything we can to make these tasks easier for you. That’s why we’re introducing a brand new partner discovery system, which we like to call the Partner Portfolio. This tool is designed to do exactly what I’ve described - to enable you, other Instructurites, and our partners to make discoveries and learn exactly what they need to know about each and every partner we have (and with 237 partners, that’s no small feat).
As you may know, we’ve used our Canvas Community to host this information in the past, and the Community has served that need very well for us. Going forward, however, we think our new portal will serve you better in the following ways:
-A sleeker, more intuitive user interface designed specifically for partner management
-More and better ways to discover partners through search, sort, and filter options
-More detailed information on what our partners do
-Up-to-the-minute information and collateral that can be updated by our partners in real time.
To help prevent broken links and confusion, our former portal in the Community will remain in place for the foreseeable future; however, please keep in mind that we will no longer be updating this location with new info. We’ll be placing redirects on each partner page to help you navigate to the new, updated portal.
As this new gateway to our partners is getting off the ground over the coming months, we hope you’ll contact us with your feedback on how to make the experience better. If you have ideas you want to share, please reach out to us at [email protected]. We take your feedback very seriously, and we are looking forward to hearing from you!
