Exciting News: New Lucid Integration Available in Canvas LMS Beta!



In partnership with the Lucid team, we're thrilled to announce the launch of the Lucid integration in Canvas LMS, now available in beta. This integration provides Canvas customers worldwide with access to the Lucid Education Suite, which empowers teachers and students with visual collaboration solutions anytime and anywhere within Canvas, at no additional cost. The Lucid Education Suite comprises Lucidspark, a collaborative virtual whiteboard that’s the official replacement for Google’s Jamboard, and Lucidchart, an intelligent diagramming application.

So, what's the buzz all about? The Lucid integration provides tools that enhance engagement in learning, boost student collaboration, and enrich your course content. Access the Lucid Education Suite directly from the Rich Content Editor (RCE) or create engaging assignments with the new assignment submission that allows a student to submit a Lucid document as the artifact that shows their learning. 

We understand the importance of user feedback in shaping the tools we offer and the Lucid team is eager to hear about your experience and how they might deepen or improve this integration. That's why we're inviting you to be a part of this exciting journey by trying out the integration in your beta instance and sharing your thoughts with us. Your insights, suggestions, and experiences are invaluable in helping us fine-tune and optimize this tool to meet your needs.
