Canvas is G2’s LMS Leader in 2021 Winter Report


Every year, the software review site G2 helps educational institutions make better purchasing decisions. Beyond offering over 1.2 million peer reviews, G2 also publishes its annual Winter Reports, giving readers a clear picture of the best education technology solutions on the market. 
This year, solutions in the Instructure Learning Platform, including Canvas LMS, were named as G2 Leaders in multiple categories—Learning Management Systems, Assessment and Digital Learning Platforms. In fact, 94% of users rated Canvas 4 or 5 stars, and it earned a 92% overall satisfaction rate. Products that appear in Leader quadrants are rated highly by G2 users and have substantial Market Presence scores. 
In the spirit of the holidays we wanted to take time out to give a big THANK YOU to you, our customers, who made this possible. 
“There is no greater honor than hearing directly from our customers that we were able to support you during one of the most challenging periods for our educational communities,” said Melissa Loble, Chief Customer Experience Officer at Instructure. “We learned a lot last year and were able to make some important changes to solutions like Canvas based on your direct feedback. As we move into 2022, I look forward to working closely with our inspiring educators and administrators to listen to and continue to meet your needs as they evolve.” 
The pandemic created unprecedented demand for solutions that help educators spend more time engaging students and improving outcomes. We designed Canvas to connect students and teachers to meet the needs of every student, to put learning experiences front and center (not tech), and to ensure every child has equitable access to curriculum—whether in the classroom, at home, or in a hybrid environment.
