The Challenge

Reshaping E-Learning Platforms to Meet Today’s Demands

Instructure’s mission is to help move learning and growth forward, with platforms that simplify teaching, learning, and career development. The company wants to help people grow from the first da y of school to the last day of work. They create intuitive products that simplify learning and personal development, facilitate meaningful relationships, and inspire people to go further in both their educational journeys and their careers.

As creators of Canvas, an e-learning platform; Portfolium, an online platform for student folios; and Bridge, a learning solution that helps companies train their workforce, Instructure supports more than 2,000 universities, school districts, and institutions around the world.

Empowering such a vast educational network isn’t easy. Instructure needs engineering muscle to maintain and incrementally improve its products to meet the ever-evolving needs of the educational industry. That’s why they trusted BairesDev to help.

The Solution

Elite Professionals to Support Critical Areas

We gathered an all-star team of React, Java, and Node.js engineers to work with Instructure as part of our Staff Augmentation service. BairesDev’s team of expert engineers works fully integrated with Instructure’s internal team developing and evolving their educational platforms, Bridge and Canvas.

The Canvas Learning Management Platform helps schools and districts address the unique challenges facing their students’ development. Meanwhile, Bridge helps provide employee development on every level, including career development, and employee engagement.

With solid technical knowledge, our teams develop their products with a keen eye for improvement and bug solving, aiming for the highest quality in an agile environment. The product team identifies the customer needs, then discusses and shapes the project, and works iterating with the Product & Design teams. We focus on keeping a large codebase up to date with the latest technologies and growing a well-tested list of features.

BairesDev is a trustworthy, knowledgeable, and adaptable development partner. Their main strength lies in the fact that they are a better cultural fit for clients in the US, being from South America. They also know how to push back and ask questions when appropriate, which provides added value.

The Outcome

Reliable and Rich E-Learning Experiences

With the invaluable help of our engineering team, Instructure has evolved both Bridge and Canvas, which are now more complete and sophisticated platforms. Our developers are able to quickly identify new needs from Bridge and Canvas users to offer solutions that meet those fast.

Additionally, our team works closely with Instructure’s team to spot bugs, issues, and vulnerabilities across a large codebase. That way, the development team can move rapidly to fix problems before they become larger issues, thus keeping the proprietary platforms’ efficiency and ease of use at all times.

Technologies involved in the project

EdTech platforms are taking huge strides forward each passing year. Keeping up with that pace requires fully qualified and highly-efficient engineers that are hard to come by. But not for BairesDev. So, when Instructure came up to us with their needs, we quickly selected the software developers they needed to boost their capacity and support their development initiatives.
