WASHINGTON, Aug. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, LearnZillion announced its partnership with Canvas—bringing together high-quality digital curricular resources and an easy-to-use learning management system (LMS) used by districts nationwide. Districts that use Canvas can now seamlessly integrate LearnZillion's dynamic, high-quality curricular materials directly into their platform using learning tools interoperability (LTI) integration.
"There's an undeniable need for districts to make high-quality content available through their learning management systems, without requiring teachers to create everything from scratch," said Eric Westendorf, CEO and co-founder of LearnZillion. "By partnering with Canvas, we're allowing districts to double-down on their technology investment, and increasing its value to teachers by including classroom-ready curricular materials directly within the platform they're already using."

LearnZillion's partnership with Canvas, the open online LMS by Instructure that makes teaching and learning easier, expands the number of teachers who will now be equipped to create engaging learning environments.
Paulding County School District and Hall CountySchools, both in Georgia, are relying on LearnZillion's CaaS solution to populate their Canvas platforms with instructional materials, using LearnZillion's LTI integration and embed functionality.
"LearnZillion's engaging content and resources integrate seamlessly with our system. Moving forward, teachers will now have multiple ways to access curriculum," said Melissa Loble, vice president of partnerships and professional services for Canvas. "For teachers, putting less focus on the logistics of retrieving information will allow more time to be spent on observing, teaching and personalizing interactions in the classroom."

As the first K-12 Curriculum-as-a-Service (CaaS) company, LearnZillion is changing the paradigm of curriculum from a static product to an adaptable, cloud-based service.
