On Wednesday, February 12, a group of specialists from Instructure gave three demonstrations of Canvas. The first demo, which is pictured below, was captured in an hour long video. In it, Mark Suman talks about the demand for a user-friendly, mobile-device-friendly LMS. He also fields questions from the audience about the directions that Instructure intends to take Canvas.
Later in the day, two technical deep dive sessions were be offered for Northwestern developers. Rick Roberts, iOS engineer at Instructure, led these sessions. He described the development and redesign of Instructure iPhone and iPad apps and showed the programming involved in Canvas External Apps (LTIs) and the Canvas APIs.
