With over 135 million Office 365 users, a huge number of businesses, nonprofits and other organizations are using Microsoft tools. Schools and districts want to prepare their students for the tools they will use in the workforce, so more and more schools are adopting Office 365 and Teams. In September 2017, it was reported that 125,000 organizations were using Microsoft Teams. By March 2018, that grew to 200,000, and in September 2018, there were close to 330,000 organizations using Teams.
Canvas and Edcite share a philosophy: we want to give educators powerful tools to create better futures for their students. At Edcite, we have seen a lot of growth in K12 for Canvas because, as schools and districts are moving toward more online curriculum, they now need the LMS capabilities that were once only used by colleges and universities. Canvas is a flexible framework that districts can set up to meet these needs. With K-12 customers in 49 of the 50 states and 4,000 customers overall, Canvas has become the solution for districts across the country.
Much like Edcite, Google Classroom is a powerful, free tool for teachers. Teachers nationwide use Google Classroom’s suite of tools to send assignments to students and manage their class stream. We are really excited to be integrating with Google Classroom Gradebook as an additional step in this journey.
