ICYMI: @PhilOnEdTech on Instructure's plans to monetize student data with new AI/machine-learning schemes. TurnItIn has massively profited from reusing student data that schools are supplying; is Canvas going the same way? IMO: it's alarminghttps://t.co/dicpmUzeFX @hypervisible pic.twitter.com/pyS3xvGIY6— Laura Gibbs (@OnlineCrsLady) March 15, 2019

Canvas: Monetizing Student Data?
Posted by Laura Gibbs
I won't have time to write more about this until next week, but if what Phil Hill has reported about Instructure's latest plans is true, it changes everything about Canvas. My strongly negative opinion about this new development is not welcome at Canvas Community, but I will be free to blog about it here. It's one thing to despair about the limitations and downsides of the LMS as it affects individual teachers and students (as I do), but this is something new, and far worse. So, more to come, but for now, I hope everybody who has an interest in the future of Canvas will take a few minutes to read Phil's important post: Instructure: Plans to expand beyond Canvas LMS into machine learning and AI.
