Canvas Overview

The Canvas by Instructure learning management system provides resources to educate students in a learning environment that helps students and faculty collaborate, whether in a face-to-face, hybrid, or online environment.

The opportunities for utilizing Canvas are limitless. Most faculty use it as a supplemental resource for a traditional class to share the course syllabus, calendar, class files, take attendance, post grades, and communicate with students. Others may also take advantage of some of the more advanced features which allow faculty to post website links and videos, promote collaboration and group work via class discussion forums, collect assignments, create tests, surveys, and more!

Looking for more information? You can self-enroll in Faculty: Canvas Training & Resources. Feel free to contact the Center for Teaching & Learning with more questions or register for a Canvas workshop or one of many others offered.

You can also view additional Canvas Resources, including Quick Tips to Setup a New Course, and information on Reusing Canvas Course Material.
