Canvas Integrates McGraw-Hill Connect
Instructure and McGraw-Hill have partnered to integrate the McGraw-Hill Connect learning platform with the Canvas learning management system (LMS).
Built on IMS Global Learning Consortium's Learning Tools Interoperability standards and slated for release later this month, the new integration is designed to improve the user experience for teachers and students who use Connect for digital content and adaptive learning delivery and Canvas for assigning homework, delivering grades and managing classroom logistics.
"At colleges that use Canvas, students will be able to interact with and benefit from all of Connect's powerful adaptive tools and content — from SmartBook to LearnSmart — without ever leaving Canvas' powerful learning management system," said Sally Shankland, president of McGraw-Hill Education's higher education group, in a prepared statement. "This effort is indicative of McGraw-Hill Education's deep commitment to open standards and to working with partners across the industry to improve the learning experience for all students."
"Our goal has always been to make learning experiences more impactful and efficient for students — and the integration of McGraw-Hill Connect with Canvas will do just that," said Melissa Loble, VP of platform and partnerships at Canvas, in a prepared statement. "Thousands of our users are also Connect users, and it just makes sense for us to work together to make their experience with both more seamless."
