Do employee learning platforms have to make you yawn/cringe/roll your eyes?” Instructure asked the same question and decided to create Bridge. Back up, you say, who’s Instructure? That’s us! We started out making Canvas, the #1 fastest-growing, industry-pushing learning management system, used from 1st grade to the Ivy League and a lot of places in between. We have 800+ employees with offices around the globe. And now, leveraging our expertise in building software that people actually want to use, we’ve created Bridge.



So, what is Bridge anyhow?
Bridge is a modern, sleek learning platform that helps make your workforce smarter faster. Bridge improves learning, communication, and alignment, allowing you to keep your finger on the pulse of your workforce and react in real-time. In a nutshell, it provides everyone with the tools they need to do a great job, starting with you.
Is Bridge mobile?
Is water wet? Of course Bridge is mobile. You can take courses in Bridge on your smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Its responsive design ensures a smooth, consistent experience wherever you are. Unless you’re on Machu Pichu or something. And, at that point, maybe it’s ok to put down the device and live that life of yours.
Is Bridge a cloud-based system?
We’re all about the cloud! And because we are native cloud, there are no versions, no upgrades, no downloads, and no migrations. It all happens automatically, so there’s less risk, less to manage, and less downtime. Fewer fits of rage too.
Is Bridge secure?
Absolutely. We conduct regular audits and even contract independent security specialists to perform and publish a public security audit. Rest assured: our data is encrypted and secure.
Is Bridge stable?
With Bridge, capacity scales automatically with demand using peak load management. When you need us most, we’re up and ready to go. If Bridge were a shelter for animals, it would be a stable. If it were a Super Bowl champion QB, it would be Ken Stabler. If it were a made-up saint, it would be St. Able.
Can Bridge integrate with my ERP/CRM?
Yes! Bridge integrates smoothly with standard ERP and CRM systems.
Will Bridge integrate with an HRIS?
Yes again! Bridge is designed to integrate with standard Human Resource Information Systems.
Does Bridge support single sign-on?
Bridge supports internal authentication and delegated authentication via CAS and other standard protocols. (Short answer: yes!)
Is Bridge interoperable with third-party applications?
Yes. And easily at that.
Is every answer on this FAQ page basically a “yes”?
How often are new Bridge features released?
The Bridge team is constantly working on new features. We release updates–often including new and exciting features–to Bridge every two weeks.

Service & Support

With Bridge, you get more than just a learning platform.

Yes, Bridge is mobile. It’s responsive. It lives in the cloud. And its toolbox is chock full of handy features. But that’s only part of the bigger Bridge picture. With Bridge, you also get an unheard-of level of service and support.

You get Instructure as a business partner.

clasped hands

And we don’t mean we want to split the profits. We mean that our success is tied to yours. We’re not a one-and-done kind of service provider—we’ll be there through thick and thin, scaling our service as you grow and giving you access to the resources that come not only with Bridge, but with Instructure.

Before Bridge was even a twinkle in our eye, Instructure had years of experience making and supporting Canvas, an award-winning LMS for K-12 and higher ed institutions. You’ll have access to the same expertise that thousands of happy Canvas clients have enjoyed for years.

You get control of the implementation process.


1. Kick-Off. We get to know your unique business needs and structure. Based on your input, we create a custom project plan for your Bridge rollout. We then schedule training (as much or as little as you’d like), gather configuration requirements, and launch the Bridge environment.

2. Configuration and Training. Bridge comes out-of-the-box ready, with all of its features fully enabled upon launch, but you have the option of integrating some nifty external services and applications. We also provide continued training on content creation and user management. (Since Bridge is so user-friendly, training is a breeze.)

3. Wrap-Up. We review the implementation with a wrap-up call and schedule upcoming check-ins with your dedicated customer success manager (we’ll talk more about them in a minute).

The bottom line: You guide the rollout. We’ll create a timeline that works for you; we won’t rush you through anything, and we’ll skip any steps you don’t find valuable.

You get your very own Bridge butler.


Actually, they prefer to be called customer success managers, or CSMs. Instead of relying on a rep who has no historical knowledge of your account, you’ll have a dedicated CSM who’s personally invested in your Bridge experience. Essentially, you get a member of our team on your team. Just don’t ask them to wear a tuxedo or make your dinner reservations.

You get answers. This century.


One of the most common complaints about LMS providers is slow support response time. This doesn’t fly with us—when you run into roadblocks, you don’t have time to twiddle your thumbs. Bridge reps respond right away (not tomorrow, not within 48 hours), so you and your employees can get back to work. We also encourage active feedback so we can keep making our product better and better.

Our partners

Bridge Partner Program

Some things work better together, like hammers and nails, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Fred and Ginger, or Bridge and your company’s other key applications.

Our Partner Program connects Bridge with third-party content, technology, and services that deliver powerful learning experiences for employees. So when it comes to empowering your people to learn The Right Stuff with The Right Tools, the sky (or your modern, mobile, integrated, cloud-based LMS) is the limit.
