We have not tried Box yet in an education context. But this is definitely exciting! Right now, we are using Canvas for the online Health Informatics Course we are offering in the Philippines. And this tool definitely came a long way, that we were able to accommodate students even out of our country. :) Although the document viewing tools present in Canvas now are already useful, integrating Box will definitely scale up the experience!

re: Box Targets Education, Will Integrate With Canvas LMS
Hey David - Good piece. There are hundreds of universities, k-12 schools, and entire districts standardizing on Smartsheet.com as their collaboration hub for projects, attaching files from Box, Google Drive or Dropbox to indiv items, like classroom assignments or campus facility tasks. This way, the relevant files are shared in context of the work at hand. The challenge for most web apps in EDU is to balance the "enterprise ready" and "consumer friendly" requirements G㢠they need to pass IT's security/scalability bar while still being easy enough to meet the user's needs...to really be beneficial on a large scale. Good for Box - smart move on their part to move into the EDU market.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
