Dojo360 can integrate with many of the most popular LMS solutions for K-12 students including Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, D2L, and Schoology, allowing instructors to keep using their proven tools. Learners can also provide real-time feedback to their instructors, helping your organization brainstorm new ways to promote interactivity throughout your content.
