Maplesoft and Instructure team up to allow easy integration of Canvas and Maple T.A.

Collaboration unites course management with STEM testing tools

Waterloo, Canada; 10 March 2016: Maplesoft today announced a Certified Partnership with Instructure, a leading software-as-a-service technology company and designer of the Canvas learning management system. Maple T.A., Maplesoft's online testing and assessment platform designed especially for technical courses involving mathematics, can now be easily accessed from within the Canvas environment.

Maplesoft's partnership with Instructure will allow instructors in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) courses to benefit from powerful testing and assessment tools in Maple T.A, including standard math notation, sophisticated plotting, free-response math questions, and intelligent grading of responses, all while remaining in the Canvas environment. The integration will provide a single platform for students to access assignments, regardless of which system they were created in, and a consolidated gradebook for instructors.
"At Instructure, we created the Canvas system to be as easy-to-use and efficient for instructors and students as possible," said Melissa Loble, VP of Partners & Programs at Instructure. "Our collaboration with Maplesoft is another great example of how we continue to make learning and teaching easier, by uniting class management and engagement with advanced testing and assessment."
"Instructors using Canvas, particularly those teaching STEM courses, will greatly benefit from Maplesoft's partnership with Instructure, said Jonny Zivku, Product Manager, Online Education Products at Maplesoft. "Using an integrated platform for both course management and advanced STEM testing will reduce overhead and provide a seamless experience for instructors and students."
In addition to Canvas, Maple T.A. can be integrated with virtually any course management system including Blackboard®, Brightspace™, Moodle™, and Sakai.
