Partnership Support

Instructure's mission is to help people grow from the first day of school to the last day of work. One crucial way we accomplish this is by partnering with those who are equally committed to learning, innovation, and technology. We will continue to support institutions, teachers and students as they prepare for and transition to, online and distance learning.
