Instructure Tripled its Canvas Customer Base
More than 300 institutions now use the Instructure cloud-native learning platform

SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Instructure, the company that develops the Canvas learning platform, tripled the number of customers it serves by adding 200 new educational institutions to its customer base in 2012. Today more than 300 colleges, universities and school districts use Canvas as their learning management system.


In 2012 Instructure also welcomed Cisco Networking Academy to its Canvas platform. The academy provides IT courses and certifications to 1 million students from colleges, universities and high schools in 165 countries.

"The number of institutions that have adopted Canvas in such a short period of time is impressive, but even more remarkable is the breadth of institutions using Canvas," said Brian Whitmer, Instructure's co-founder and chief product officer. "Our client base includes Ivy League institutions, state universities, community and technical colleges and a growing number of K-12 schools and districts."

New higher education customers added by Instructure in 2012 include the following:

  • Alamo State Colleges
  • Julliard School of Music
  • University of Maryland
  • University of Texas at Austin
  • University of Washington
  • Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges

Instructure also added 50 new K-12 school districts in 2012, including the following:

  • Naperville Community Unit School District 203 in Illinois
  • Penn-Harris-Madison Schools in Indiana
  • Sweetwater Union High School District in California

Instructure expanded the Canvas platform in 2012 by adding Canvas Analytics, Canvas for iOS and Canvas for Android. In November, Instructure responded to the MOOC phenomenon by releasing Canvas Network, an index of open online courses offered by institutions ranging from Ivy Leagues to community colleges.

Instructure hired 120 employees in 2012, bringing its total employee headcount to more than 200. It also recently announced plans to hire 600 more employees over the next five years to keep pace with projected growth.
