There are those moments—some big, some small—that make a huge impact. Educators, administrators, and edtech enthusiasts crossed the globe to make new moments together at InstructureCon 2023 in Denver, Colorado.
The day started off with a bang (literally) during the opening keynote from Instructure executives, including our CEO and resident ringleader, Steve Daly.

Moments of Learning
Dr. Jordan Nguyen took the stage to share insights on creating inclusive innovations and how technology can bring positive, sustainable, and life-altering change. This keynote mesmerized those in the room, creating moments of awe and inspiring thoughtful conversation about the topic.
Can’t contain my excitement that @DocJordy is sharing the “Era of Imagination” using ARVR at #INSTCon23!!!!!— Rosemary Jane (@Rosemary_Edu) July 26, 2023
I have used #ARVR4Littles with #3Ddesign4Littles to impact innovation & #DigitalCitizenship as my big #ConfettiMoment in Edu!
Fascinating and inspiring keynote by @DocJordy sharing stories and amazing innovation to make the world a better place - “One life. Persist to improve Many” “It’s about our Humanity, not the technology” #InstCon23— ˜”*°• Hildi Pardo •°*”˜ (@Hildi_Pardo) July 26, 2023
The learning continued with insightful breakout sessions, high-energy networking, and all-around-awesomeness. Artificial intelligence (AI) was a hot topic, with panel discussions on it's impact in education and Instructure's guiding principles on the use of AI (plus, more announcements to come.)

Moments of Inspiration
Attendees were invited to share their favorite educational confetti moments for their chance to win a stay in the Presidential Suite, and the response was astounding. We are so proud to be a part of these moments.
My favorite educational moment is hearing from a graduate of our online BS in MLS program who would not have been able to complete their degree if it wasn’t offered online! @Canvas_by_Inst @Instructure #InstCon23 #instsweetsuite #makingmoments— Erin Rumpke (@erinrumpke) July 26, 2023
My educational confetti moments are those when I see instructors enthusiastically trying out new things in their courses! Seeing instructors get reinvigorated from renovating their instruction gets me excited to learn & share more! 🥳#INSTSweetSuite #INSTCon23 @Canvas_by_Inst— Leandra Toomoth (@leandra0414) July 26, 2023
My favorite moment is seeing the learning gap get smaller and smaller for non-traditional students. Canvas is the fuel that keeps that learning fire going. #INSTSweetSuite #instcon23 pic.twitter.com/kT8T4krEsE— kenia reyes (@kramos115) July 26, 2023
Moments of Connection
One of the best parts of the first day of a conference (especially InstructureCON 😉) are the moments of connection, especially since we're back together in person!
Moments of Fun
InstructureCon is synonymous with fun—and day one was full of moments of fun.
We’re so excited to be back together again to experience new moments with you. Stay tuned for a whole lot of learning…and a whole lot of fun as InstructureCon 2023 carries on!
