SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 2, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Instruct and Miami Dade College (MDC) announced today that the College has chosen Canvas as its new learning management system, to drive student success and completion through reliable, open and inclusive education technology. LMS canvas is part of the Instructure learning platform and is the market share leader in higher education. Through the Canvas implementation, MDC and Instructure will work together to support the institution’s diverse student body with a fully mobile and accessible solution, and to ensure a smooth transition for students and faculty as they migrate away from the old LMS provider.

“Miami Dade College is an economic, cultural and civic leader, advancing the education of a diverse global community. Instructure is honored to support its community of educators and students,” said Melissa Loblé, Director of Customer Experience at Instructure. “The reliability of the platform is more critical than ever, due to the variability of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent increase in online education. Instructure can deliver the flexible and consistent student experience including Miami Dade needs via Canvas, with its intuitive, easy-to-use design that supports all students.

There are 167 nations and 63 languages ​​represented in the MDC student body. The college’s eight campuses and outreach centers offer more than 300 distinct study tracks, including associate and bachelor’s degrees, college credit certificates, digital badges, quick credentials, apprenticeships, and more. . MDC was looking for a robust learning management system that offers a mobile experience to create inclusiveness for mature students on the go, as well as multilingual support.

Canvas is a fully SaaS learning environment that streamlines interaction and builds strong relationships between teachers and students, whether in the physical, coeducational, or fully online classroom. Traditionally, technology designed to support blended and online learning has been inflexible, difficult to integrate into lessons, difficult to export data, and failed to meet the expectations of today’s students and faculty looking to provide a more engaging online experience. This resulted in poorly designed and executed courses that impacted adoption in an institution. Canvas was created to simplify teaching so that teachers can spend more time engaging students in ways that enhance learning.

“Our mission is to change lives through accessible, high-quality teaching and learning experiences, and using Canvas will help us achieve this,” said Dr. Malou C. Harrison, MDC Provost. “Innovation in higher education has accelerated and evolves every day as we serve more minority students than any other college in the United States. Finding the right learning management tools to respond to this evolution was imperative, and that’s why we chose Canvas LMS.

The Instructure Learning Platform is an open, reliable and extensible learning ecosystem enabling a digital learning environment for educators, students and institutions. The platform is made up of several key pillars, such as assessment, professional development and analysis, which work together to enrich, support and connect all aspects of teaching and learning. The Canvas family of tools is the learning management pillar of the Instructure learning platform.
