AspirEDU Attains Certified Partner Status with Canvas by Instructure
AspirEDU, a company specializing in data driven educational analytics, announced that it has attained Certified Partner status with Canvas, joining the ranks of other Canvas partners such as Pearson, McGraw Hill, Wiley and Adobe. Canvas by Instructure is a cloud native learning management system (LMS) used every day by more than 400 colleges, universities and school districts. In addition, the Cisco Networking Academy selected Canvas to power “The World’s Largest Classroom.”
“AspirEDU has the passion and energy needed to develop a solution specifically to help at-risk students,” said Brian Whitmer, co-founder and chief product officer. “Canvas is a platform that allows partners like AspirEDU to dig deep into these particular areas of education that need attention. We look forward to working with AspirEDU to make this a success.”
This strategic partnership focuses on AspirEDU’s flagship product release, Aspire Student Analytics. The solution easily identifies at-risk students enrolled in online courses with the goal of increasing success rates, overall grade point averages, student participation and graduation rates by giving institutions the tools needed to moderate and proactively mitigate performance related issues.
“Expanding our customer base with the Canvas partnership is an exciting opportunity to showcase our solution,” commented Kimberley Munzo, CEO of AspirEDU. “Having the confidence of Instructure and gaining access to their technology and leadership means we can impact more students. Becoming a part of this established and respected network offering cloud-based and highly accessible technology to some of the country’s foremost educational institutions is just the direction we want to be heading, and we think that speaks volumes for what we have to offer.”
AspirEDU will present its Analytics solutions to more than 1,000 attendees at InstructureCon 2013, June 18-20 in Park City, Utah. The third annual conference brings Canvas users and partners together for a three-day event to learn about the future of the learning platform.
