Canvas Credentials Checklist for Success 

Digital Credentialing is rapidly becoming a dominant force in the education and workforce sectors. Many institutions are faced with the question of where to begin in this new landscape. The Instructure Strategic Services Team has created a checklist through industry partnerships and customer collaboration. This checklist aims to enable institutions to self-assess their progress toward implementing a Credentials Program and provide actionable items ensuring success.


Building Collaborative Relationships with Industry Partners for Micro-Credential Programs

Many Institutions are seeking ways to break into the credentialing space. In addition to conversations about how credentials can be used in the traditional academic space, institutions seek creative and innovative credentialing programs. Regardless of the conversation, the question remains: Where do we start? The answer lies in employer partnerships.
