Updates - Canvas LMS

To best meet clients needs and feedback, our application is updated consistently!  For the best experience, your IntelliBoard application will need to be maintained.  A running stream of updates can be found below.

You'll use the Developer Keys to connect to Canvas; no additional download required!

Directions to install the plugin maybe found here.

What you need to know about Canvas Data access through IntelliBoard

In order for the processing of reports and analytics to visualize at an acceptable speed, IntelliBoard integrates with Canvas Data and duplicates selected data points to IntelliBoard servers under Client account authentication. No other clients can access that data set, and each data set is located in a specific location assigned to that specific client, similar to how Canvas and other entities segregate server data with the highest security possible. No direct access to data exists, other than through the IntelliBoard application itself.

Recently, IntelliBoard introduced filters for Canvas for the purpose of limiting the size of the data copied to IntelliBoard storage. If clients choose to view data for 1 year only, then the dataset is copied for that year only.

IntelliBoard uses API access and processes Canvas Data, authenticated by Canvas. Only Canvas Partners have access to the Canvas API and Canvas Data processing. IntelliBoard is a Canvas partner.

IntelliBoard is certified by Privacy Shield, (, which monitors our actions to GDPR standards. IntelliBoard was approved in December, 2018, and will undergo the required annual review henceforth.

When we store data (Canvas) it is stored in IntelliBoard’s iHub which is on Amazon Web Services.

NOTE: Reports and monitor filters are now Cached to store set filters for later use. Cache will be cleared with each processing.
