What is Canvas?

  • Canvas lets you focus more on teaching (and less on tasks).

    Canvas is a reliable and reputable web-based learning management system (LMS). It allows institutions to manage digital learning, educators to create and present online learning materials and assess student learning, and students to engage in courses and receive feedback about skill development and learning achievement.

    Canvas includes a variety of customizable course creation and management tools, course and user analytics and statistics, and internal communication tools. Any user can access Canvas on a mobile device from the Canvas Teacher, Canvas Student, and Canvas Parent apps. Learn more about the Canvas mobile apps.
