Canvas Team

 


 

First, you will need to familiarize yourself with Canvas as a Learning Management System.

Canvas is a fairly new Learning Management System that is gaining ground in a competitive market.

Canvas was designed by Instructure as an open source learning management system. It can act as a non-commercial LMS that you install on your server or as a commercial system that is housed in Instructure's Salt Lake City, Utah, USA servers. It is a bit like a "hybrid" between commercial and non-commercial.

Instructure has been providing teachers free accounts (with a few limitations that do not seem to hamper full utilization).

Please begin by viewing the Canvas Interface Overview Video
