Instructure Canvas Users Can Now Access the WizIQ Virtual Classroom Directly From Within the LMS(October 19, 2011)
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/19/11 -- WizIQ, a web-based education platform, announced its WizIQ Virtual Classroom plugin for Instructure Canvas Tuesday at EDUCAUSE. WizIQ is launching the plugin as part of Instructure's simultaneously announced partner program and, as an Instructure Certified Partner, worked closely with Instructure engineers to ensure a seamless experience for Canvas users.
The WizIQ Virtual Classroom Canvas Plugin will allow instructors to instantly launch an online class session with students. The plugin handles single sign-on, so users needn't log into a separate service and includes:
- Unlimited shared virtual whiteboards.
- Audio and video connections between instructors and students.
- Shared presentations (complete with animations), reports, documents, PDFs, Excel spreadsheets, and multimedia files (including queued YouTube playlists), as well as screen sharing.
- Text chat with all participants or direct with the instructor.
- Formative assessment through polls pushed to students by the instructor.
Christopher Dawson, WizIQ VP of Business Development, explained, "Instructure Canvas has a really unique approach to the learning management system and its cloud-based, Ruby on Rails implementation is very progressive. Canvas was a natural fit for WizIQ and we're proud to be a Certified Partner."
Canvas users should contact their account managers or WizIQ directly (firstname.lastname@example.org to speak with Mr. Dawson) to learn more. WizIQ representatives will also be at Instructure's upcoming CanvasCon event and in booth 300 at EDUCAUSE for the next two days. WizIQ will be offering deep discounts to Canvas customers who subscribe to WizIQ before the end of November as they welcome schools and universities to the most cost-effective virtual classroom on the market.
