WebAssign Partners with Instructure and Desire2Learn

WebAssign will integrate with learning management systems Canvas by Instructure and Brightspace by D2L

RALEIGH, N.C. — December 8, 2014 — WebAssign, a leading provider of online instructional tools for faculty and students, today announced it has partnered with market-leading education technology companies, Instructure and Desire2Learn, to simplify student access to WebAssign’s course content.

WebAssign signed agreements with both companies to integrate with each business’s learning management system, Canvas and Brightspace. Utilizing IMS Global’s Learning Tool Interoperability standard, WebAssign will support such effortless accessibility features as single sign-on functionality and automatic roster creation beginning spring 2015.

These integrations will save faculty time and effort by reducing many of the administrative tasks normally associated with educational technology. “The new integrations will offer faculty and students a more seamless experience between the online learning systems, letting them focus on what is important, teaching and learning,” said John Lepanto, WebAssign product manager.

The alliance with Canvas and Brightspace augments WebAssign’s LMS integration capabilities, which already includes Blackboard, Shibboleth, and Moodle. Plans to integrate with additional learning management systems are underway.
