Canvas is a web-based learning management system which brings together all digital resources and tools that students and teachers use daily during various aspects of a lesson, whether in the classroom or at home. Designed specifically for the K-12 environment, the program is comprehensive and easy to use. It includes a calendar for posting important due dates and reminders, pages with content built-in and with links to other class resources, discussion boards to foster engaging, educational dialogue, and assignments with drop-boxes for work submission. Canvas also integrates with Microsoft Office365 tools, making access to OneDrive and other apps seamless. In short, it is a hub for teaching and learning and for communication about student skill development and learning achievement.
While Canvas is primarily a web-based program, there are free apps that can be used to access Canvas from a mobile device.
