Core Digital Instructional Tools


Canvas by Instructure is a cloud-based learning management system (LMS) adopted by 33 of 34 Washington state community and technical colleges. Canvas is a next generation LMS that allows integration of multiple instructional tools.


Badgr is the badging software that was selected by the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) to host the badges that SBCTC creates and awards. While Badgr is available for free, SBCTC has provided a license to the paid version of Badgr, Badgr Pro, for all Washington Community and Technical Colleges.


Panopto is a cloud-based lecture capture service Washington state community and technical colleges can use to capture any class or lecture — on or off-campus — for later review by students; anytime, anywhere. Panopto supports recording and viewing of on-demand recordings using a desktop or mobile device. The SBCTC contract allows unlimited use of Panopto by anyone associated with our colleges and the tool is integrated with Canvas.

The Panopto support page offers free professional development, support and tutorials.
