Bio:
I am passionate about solving problems, Liverpool football club, and Marmite, although probably not in that order. One of my duties has been as the technical LMS lead for Virginia's Community Colleges for the past 15 years or so, and now as they have moved from another LMS to Canvas. While far from a hard-core programmer, I enjoy making life easier for myself and college staff (in that order). I am mildly proud of building an elegant per diem calculator, and of being on Google's Higher Education Customer Advisory Board.

Looks like it is literally the "jQuery" object. Not sure if it's intentional, but probably old code on our part.

Not sure if this is temporary but we're seeing issues with jQuery not loading in Beta. Is this just us?

FWIW I've used TeamDynamix iPaaS product to work with the Canvas API, which is a delivered connector.
