• Canvas is a web-based learning management system, or LMS. It is used by learning institutions, educators, and students to access and manage online course learning materials and communicate 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.


    Teachers often use Canvas to upload daily lessons, worksheets, and other activities to make learning interactive and online. Not all teachers use it every day, but all will get their students familiar with their classes and have basic information about their course within the Canvas system.
