WATERLOO, Canada, Sep 29, 2016 – Maplesoft, developer of Maple T.A., today announced that it has entered into an alliance partnership with Instructure, makers of Canvas, a modern learning management system (LMS) that makes teaching and learning easier for educators and students. With this partnership, Instructure will recommend Maple T.A. to its customers.
Maple T.A., an online testing and assessment platform designed especially for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) courses, can be easily accessed from within the Canvas environment. The integration provides a single platform for students to access assignments, regardless of which system they were created in, and a consolidated gradebook for instructors. Maple T.A’s standard math notation, sophisticated plotting, free-response math questions, and intelligent grading of responses can all be accessed and used while remaining in the Canvas environment. This will reduce overhead while providing a seamless experience for instructors and students.
“We believe that integrating Maple T.A. with Canvas provides tremendous advantages to both students and instructors,” said Tara Gunther, senior director, sales & strategic alliances, Instructure. “Maple T.A.’s automated testing and assessment features can be accessed from within the Canvas environment, allowing instructors to seamlessly manage their course material, keep track of student performance and provide immediate feedback and intervention.”
“Customers of both companies stand to gain from the integration of Maple T.A. with Canvas,” said Darren McIntyre, executive vice president, Business Development, Maplesoft. “Maple T.A. enables true assessment of student learning, especially for STEM-based courses. Being able to access and use Maple T.A. from within the Canvas environment makes it very easy and convenient for Canvas users to benefit from these two powerful online learning tools.”
