American University Kyiv Selects the Canvas Learning Management System to Provide World Class Learning Experiences

American University Kyiv (AUK) in partnership with Arizona State University, selected Canvas as its learning management system, to empower student success through reliable, open, and inclusive educational technology. Canvas LMS is part of the Instructure Learning Platform and market-share leader. AUK is now one of the first universities in Ukraine to provide its students with a unique educational experience based on Canvas LMS.

Canvas is an open-source cloud-based platform for online learning and teaching. Instructure has nearly 7,000 customers in Higher Education, K-12, and corporate markets in more than 100 countries with tens of millions of users.

AUK is choosing to launch its first semester online to provide access to high-quality education to Ukrainians who have had to leave their homes due to Russian aggression. At the same time, AUK hopes to return to its flagship campus in the Riverport building as soon as the security situation allows. In the meantime, AUK’s partnerships with ASU and Instructure will allow AUK to provide students with a top-class online experience in Ukraine.

"AUK is highly committed to an American quality of education. The Canvas LMS is a high-quality online learning system, and we are very proud to be the first university in Ukraine to share this incredible LMS experience with our students.” — said AUK Rector Dr. Roman Sheremeta.

The Canvas LMS is a reliable cloud-based system that supports faculty in effectively managing digital learning. It helps build strong relationships between teachers and students in offline, hybrid, or fully online classrooms. Both faculty and students benefit from its options that enable 24/7 access to learning materials, provide maximum interactivity and user-friendliness and introduce a wide range of communication tools.

In addition, Canvas has various tools for creating and managing courses, as well as user analytics to help teachers understand what assignments are the most engaging in their classes. These innovative tools make Canvas LMS a unique platform that makes teaching and learning an easy and informed process.

AUK started using Canvas in September of 2021. During the ongoing war in Ukraine, the U.S. edtech company has graciously agreed to support AUK by providing additional training for its faculty.

“We’re delighted to support American University Kyiv as they extend access to learning to their students during this challenging time. Canvas LMS allows AUK to offer its students the opportunity to continue their education online. We share AUK’s vision to offer innovative learning experiences and look forward to elevating student success in Ukraine,” - said Jay Fabian, Instructure’s General Manager for EMEA.
