Please complete a Google spreadsheet listing what software tool/platform/product is used by the Ivy League schools, Stanford, the University of California Schools, and selected prep schools (Phillips Exeter, Andover, Groton, Deerfield, Head-Royce School in Oakland, and the Thatcher School in Southern California) to communicate homework and classroom assignments between teachers and students. Also collect, where available, known reviews and comments from each user site---also with years in use, cost structure (site license? free?), and some other details.
Hello! Thanks for your question requesting information on the learning management systems used by Ivy League and selected prep schools. The short answer is that Canvas is the most used LMS of the requested schools. Pricing structures are only available upon request due to the wide variety of customizable features. The attached spreadsheet gives a summary of my findings.
We first looked at each of the listed schools for the current LMS used. We then looked to find how long each school had been using the preferred LMS. We were only able to find a few schools that specified the dates the platform was adopted. We also searched the LMS website for information on pricing structure. None of the companies listed prices since the platforms are highly customizable. Finally, we searched for user reviews.
A full summary of the results can be found in the attached spreadsheet. Some highlights are:
Nine of the schools mentioned use the Canvas Learning Management System designed by Instructure. The platform is used in 2000 different schools/businesses and has 18 million users.
While Moodle is not used by any of the requested schools, it is one of the most popular LMS platforms. It is used by 70,569 different schools/businesses and has 89.2 million users.
To wrap it up, Canvas is the most used LMS for the listed schools and Blackboard is used by one school. Pricing is available by request only and depends on how many features are required.
Thanks for using Wonder! Please let us know if we can help with anything else!
