"We looked at a lot of platforms. Canopy was just so much more intuitive than everything else we saw. I have really enjoyed using it so far. "
"I absolutely love how simple it is to navigate as a creator AND as a student! Having everything embedded into one screen is a game changer."
"I really like the progress bars. That was the worst part of what we were using before. It was hard to know how to find what I needed to do and the lesson stuff that went with it. Now I don't even have to think. It's all just right there."
"I found Canopy incredibly intuitive because it has this really nice Creator’s dashboard. As I looked at what I could include, I found myself adding more components and revising the lessons because I was inspired by the options I had. The way the creation flows is really conducive for more innovation and more engaging lessons."
"I want to make a time elapse video to show everyone how fast it is to make a lesson in Canopy. It's amazing. I love it... I can't wait for our teachers to start sharing resources with each other in Canopy."
The best way to see how different Canopy is from other platforms is to experience it for yourself.

No more folders. Canopy’s expand/collapse organization system allows you to organize the content for hundreds of lessons on a single screen. Visual progress tracking means that you see exactly where each of your learners are at with just a glance.
No more endless tabs. Canopy offers over 20 different ways for learners to engage with content, demonstrate learning and discuss ideas from within the platform. This means learners can focus on the content - not the technology. Veteran educators and fans of Universal Design for Learning will appreciate how powerful this is for in-depth understanding.
Canopy lets creators sell seats in an online course as well. Other platforms are great for the 'one to the faceless many' model of digital course creation. But Canopy is ideal for cohort based learning experiences where the instructor wants to create conversations, review submissions, and offer personalized feedback. You can add a payment feature to your Canopy course or upload a roster from a csv file if you've done your course registration outside of Canopy.
Canopy’s unique communities feature allows educators and learning designers to easily share lessons, units, or entire courses in just moments. Courses can also have unlimited co-teachers so multiple instructors can create content and give feedback to a single cohort of learners.
Canopy’s branded course libraries allow any individual or organization to be their own digital curriculum publisher. Users can sell access to courses and/or the actual curriculum materials to other educators. Organizations and individuals can also choose to create external preview pages that just showcase content to make well organized content more accessible.

Curriculum providers use Canopy like a 'Shopify for digital curriculum'. Before Shopify, brick and mortar stores wanted to sell online, but it was difficult to create their own ecommerce platform. Shopify solved this problem.
Canopy does the same thing for curriculum companies that have mostly focused on PDFs or video content. With Canopy, these organizations can transform their existing resources into a fully realized curriculum - complete with multiple tools for student engagement, built in progress tracking, Google Classroom integrations, etc - and then sell it to schools and districts. (Individual creators use Canopy more as an Etsy)
