Canvas GFX, Inc, technical illustration software provider, announces Canvas Unlimited for Universities, a subscription plan for the education sector intended to support university students and faculty working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Canvas is now offering unlimited licenses to every university worldwide for a single affordable annual subscription. The offer applies to Canvas’ full product portfolio, which includes Canvas X, Canvas X3, Canvas X GEO, and Canvas X Draw for macOS.  

The new plan is in response to high demand for extra licenses from students and faculty worldwide who need to use Canvas while working remotely.  

Universities using Canvas software to teach and learn include Harvard, Boston College and Baylor University in the US, and many institutions throughout Europe and Asia Pacific.  

“Despite the uncertainty we must all now accept, we believe it is crucial that we strive to maintain normality wherever it is feasible and safe to do so," said Patricia Hume, CEO at Canvas. "This is particularly important in the education sector, where the young people who will lead us to a brighter future need to retain access to the essential tools of learning.” 

Hume continued: “Our new Canvas Unlimited offer for the education sector means that, for the same cost as 40 Canvas X licenses, universities can get Canvas for 400, 4,000 or even 40,000 users.”
