Canvas is a cloud-based Learning Management System (LMS) used to support instruction. Canvas allows instructors to upload course content to a virtual classroom where they can distribute that content to students near and far. Canvas also allows instructors to facilitate instruction through a variety of tools that encourage student-to-student, student-to-instructor, and student-to-content interactions. Some of our instructors use this tool to enhance their face-to-face courses, while others use it support their hybrid and fully online instruction.
