Å publisere på Canvas Network

Vanligh bruk av Canvas krever lisens:

The cost to implement Canvas varies based on size, training, support, and other localized factors, but our pricing model is simple enough to explain in one sentence: You pay a one-time implementation fee and an annual subscription fee based on your total number of users.

Man kan også publisere Canvas-kurs for offentligheten etter godkjent søknad på firmaet Instructures nettsted canvas.net. Det forutsetter institusjonell avtale med Instructure og skjer under styring og veiledning av bedriftens konsulenter  (Client Relationship Managers og Canvas Network Instructional Design Consultants).

Men (ut fra det vi kan slutte oss til fra vanskelig tilgjengelig dokumentasjon) kan man ikke videreformidle kursmateriale fra Canvas Network. Da må det publiseres i Canvas Commons (der en må ha Canvas-lisens).

Ut fra dette ser det ut til at Instructure har ordnet seg slik:

  • Man må ha (institusjonell) lisens for å bruke Camvas-kurs på egen tjenermaskin.
  • Man kan dele læringsobjekter mellom offisielle og lisensbelagte Canvas-tjenere via Canvas Commons.
  • Man kan publisere kurs, men ikke dele dem via Canvas Network.
  • Man kan kjøre egen server med begrenset funksjonalitet og behov for kontinuerlig lokalt vedlikehold. De som lager Canvas-kurs vil tendensielt bruke mer avanserte funksjoner enn de en ksn bruke på egen open-source server.

Løsningen er laget for “lock-in” men under inntrykk av åpenhet.
