About the Program

Is Instructure a tech company with its heart in learning? Or a learning company with its heart in tech? Either way, our mission is to make software that makes people smarter. And one crucial way we accomplish that is by partnering with our 100+ like-minded (and, even better, divergently-minded) partners, who are equally committed to learning, innovation, and technology (sometimes all three). Our partners push us and we push them, keeping our foot on the innovation accelerator—from IMS to LTI to LIS and more. Together, we believe we can make integrations as easy as humanly possible and, in the process, make teaching and learning easier too.

“Often partner programs are a place where good intentions go to die. But it’s clear that Instructure realized a long time ago that the ecosystem of applications around Canvas will be a large part of its success. They invest substantial time and energy making sure that quality partners get the attention and assistance they need to succeed.  It’s been a pleasure to work with them.” -Hypothes.is
