How Using Harvard’s Cutting-Edge Technology can Deliver Industry-Leading Property Development Courses


The Applied Property Development Institute (APDI®) is at the forefront of best practise in property development courses.

By combining industry expertise, a real-world curriculum, modern education techniques and cutting-edge technology, APDI’s® property development courses represent the best opportunity to advance your career prospects.

About the technology that powers the industry’s learning potential

From 2018, in conjunction with its Curriculum Advisory Committee, APDI® will deliver courses using Canvas, a Learning Management System (LMS) tried and tested by such educational institutions as Harvard and Yale in the United States.

This new partnership sees Canvas deliver an online, open-source learning management environment for all APDI® Courses and CPD Learning Programs.

Through this system, APDI® can ensure best practice teaching and learning methodologies are accessible by all members.

APDI® has chosen Canvas as the best in-class, for its ability to maximise course development and delivery systems, supporting both online and in-class learning environments.

Online Property Development Course

Canvas is a cloud-based Learning Management System, developed by listed company Instructure (NYSE: INST), whose products are used by more than 2,000 universities and schools around the globe.

The major benefit to members is that Canvas is multi-device enabled and ready to deliver content online, laptop, mobile or by tablet.

“Canvas is just one part of an integrated strategy for leveraging global technology best practice, to deliver learning outcomes to our Members with industry leading systems,“ APDI’s managing director Ben Robinson said.

“Together with our recently announced CPD Accreditation, we are focused on a ‘best in class’ operating culture and an enhanced experience to our Members.”

Importantly, by mid-2018, all courses offered by APDI® will have been developed with input from leading industry and technology partners, reflecting APDI®’s superior learning experience.
