Deliver the Course Online

Course delivery has never been easier. Rather than linking away from the course, all outside materials and links are now displayed inside one easy-to-use learning environment. A powerful, but discrete toolbar gives learners the ability to take part in discussions, complete tasks, take notes, and see their overall progress throughout the course.

Tasks, Quizzes, and Progress Measurement

(pro and premium)

Assign tasks and add quizzes to any learning module in Open Tapestry. Frequent tasks and quizzes help the learner stay engaged, check comprehension and help with understanding. Track usage data on any content that is shared with learners.


Discussion Tools

Courses and tapestries are equipped with powerful discussion tools such as Disqus, IntenseDebate, Skype, and Open Study to allow learners to ask questions, communicate with other learners and instructors, and comment on information.


Online Textbooks

With the Open Tapestry, you have the ability to draw from every type of instructional resource, including online books. Instructional courses often use online books for learners to read and complete the activities. Instructors can provide additional instruction by adding text, images, and other media to the book.



Traditional analytics only show activity on web pages that you host. Open Tapestry lets you track usage data on all content you share, including third party websites. Use this data to measure learner engagement and evaluate learning resources.


Password Protection & HTTPS Security

Secure your version of Open Tapestry behind password so that your organization can share content privately. Transmit data securely using HTTPS.


Organizational Branding

Become a premium member to customize the design and layout of the toolbar to include the look of your organization or website.


Administrator Settings

As an administrator you can generate license reports, change settings, manage permissions, and customize the appearance of your instance of Open Tapestry.


License Tracking

Open Tapestry keeps track of content licenses for all the content that is clipped, weaved, or added into a Tapestry. Instructors have the ability to view content license reports that show the original source, the author, and the type of license. Administrators can use these reports to enforce policies regarding copyright and other content use policies, as well as keep them and their learners legally safe.


Single Sign-On

Open Tapestry is up-to-date with all the latest web and learning standards, including LTI. This allows us to communicate effectively with other systems like Canvas, making it easier for learners to access online courses.
