"At colleges that use Canvas, students will be able to interact with and benefit from all of Connect's powerful adaptive tools and content – from SmartBook to LearnSmart – without ever leaving Canvas' powerful learning management system," said Sally Shankland, President of McGraw-Hill Education's Higher Education group. "This effort is indicative of McGraw-Hill Education's deep commitment to open standards and to working with partners across the industry to improve the learning experience for all students."
What does it mean for Connect to be deeply integrated with Canvas? This kind of integration embeds the learning experience within Canvas itself. It goes further than just offering the users single sign-on and automatic grade sync between the LMS and external learning materials. The user can move elegantly between modules and assignments, experiencing a more seamless transition between two platforms.
Connect is McGraw-Hill Education's learning platform for the higher education market. Connect offers an intuitive student-centric design with many titles optimized for use on tablets via native apps. It allows students to complete assignments, study course material through the SmartBook adaptive reading experience, and access the Connect Insight analytics dashboard – anytime, anywhere.

The deep integration of Connect and Canvas will be made available on July 23rd, and will work immediately for anyone using both systems.
"Our goal has always been to make learning experiences more impactful and efficient for students – and the integration of McGraw-Hill Connect with Canvas will do just that," said Melissa Loble, VP of Platform and Partnerships at Canvas. "Thousands of our users are also Connect users, and it just makes sense for us to work together to make their experience with both more seamless."
