"Administrators will have robust tools to manage the entire professional development process in Canvas, as well as powerful analytics for federal, state and local reporting."
"We understand that professional development is critical in refining and developing new teaching skills," said Ed MacNevin, CEO at GoSignMeUp, in a news release. "GoSignMeUp is ideally suited for this since we provide an easy course registration process for teachers, but also powerful reporting tools to help improve learning pathways."
