Openness is one of our key values at Canvas - from our open office to our open platform, we love transparency and a culture of sharing. Our open ecosystem of partners is part of that policy; we believe that Canvas is great at being a learning management system, but we can’t be all things to all people. That’s where our partners come in: they truly make Canvas better, and anyone is free to create an integration that builds on the Canvas platform using open standards.
Many organizations have taken advantage of our open platform! Did you know that we have over 200 partners who can help you extend and improve what Canvas can enable you to do in your classroom? We know that’s a lot to swallow - who has time to learn about 200 different solutions and choose the best ones?
Enter Partner Days. We’ve created these bi-monthly virtual events, hosted on CanvasLIVE, to help you get to know our partners better. Partner Days come complete with a keynote presentation on a topic related to the Canvas platform, ten 30-minute presentations from hand-selected partners, plus swag giveaways, games, trivia, and more.
