The FAS Academic Technology Group's Brandon Bentley (senior instructional technologist) and Mike Hilborn (associate director, academic technology development) participated in a session at the 2016 IT Summit on Canvas use and adoption across Harvard schools.
The subject of the demonstration was the new LTI-compliant Image Media Manager tool, an application that leverages the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF), the IIIF-compliant Mirador viewer, and Canvas's LTI extensibility to provide instructors with a high-quality, deep-zooming image presentation experience within the Canvas course platform.

The Image Media Management tool, developed by FAS ATG in cooperation with Teaching and Learning Technologies, Research Computing in the Arts and Humanities, and the Harvard Libraries, was released on May 2, 2016, and is being piloted in courses this Fall.
