Canvas is a cloud-based Learning Management System (LMS) that we use 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. For example, when using Canvas, students may be asked to read articles, watch videos, submit assignments, take quizzes, participate in discussions, and complete group projects. Some of our instructors use this tool to enhance their face-to-face courses, while others use it to support their hybrid and fully online instruction.
