Our APAC customers, including SCEGGS, Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts, SIM University, and the University of Auckland have selected Canvas as their LMS platform partner of choice to tackle headon the challenges and opportunities presented by the global education marketplace. We are delighted to be working with them moving forward,” said Troy Martin, Director of APAC for Canvas.
