Last year UAF faculty piloted a number of courses through the Canvas LMS. By and large, most people thought it was comparable to Blackboard. Canvas is an interesting company and is currently offering grants for Innovative Ideas in both K-12 and Higher Ed. The deadline to apply is January 20, 2014.
According to their site:
Canvas has always believed in education and innovation. Now we’re putting our money where our mouth is and offering $100k in grants to help spur innovation in education. The most innovative ideas in specific categories for both Higher Ed and K-12, as judged by a panel of experts, will receive grant money to help get their difference-making ideas off the ground. Submissions may include (but are not limited to) content, applications, classroom techniques, tools, and who knows what other amazing thing you brilliant people might come up with. We’ll announce the winners at SXSWedu in March 2014.
