Canvas Information

What is Canvas?

Canvas is a Web-based Course Management system and collaboration portal that enables educators to manage course materials and to communicate with students.

What Canvas does to support your e-Learning experience?

With Canvas, you can take surveys, quizzes, and tests; send and receive course email; post messages to threaded discussions and chat rooms; upload your assignments using online drop boxes that are protected from viewing by unauthorized viewers.  You can check your progress and grades at any time during a course. Your instructor can also create groups and teams for project or committee work. These features help make your online experience comparable to on campus instruction.  By logging into your Canvas account you will have access to course materials such as the syllabus, video lectures, homework and exams and drop boxes for assignments.
