Making the leap from high school to college STEM and ELA courses can be a challenge even for well-prepared students. Looking for a way to give new University of Texas at Austin students a leg up on these challenging curricula, the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) sought help to create a multifaceted online program that would keep students on track to their educational and career goals.
Enspire worked shoulder-to-shoulder with UT stakeholders and subject matter experts to develop OnRamp’s educational content, while at the same time leveraging high level contacts with Canvas Learning Management System creator Instructure to build extensions into their revolutionary LMS.
OnRamps features valuable coursework, rich media, and sophisticated collaboration and interactivity tools built as Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) modules integrated with Canvas. Enspire was invited to present at InstructureCon 2013 to discuss its extensions to Canvas and offer a primer to new Canvas vendors in how to get from “Hello World” to useful LTI tools.
