It's not about what
canvas can do. It's about
the amazing things you can do with Canvas
Canvas is all about usability. From the very beginning, it was designed with users in mind, so its real power comes from its simplicity. In study after study, users of all abilities say the Canvas interface is clean, intuitive and easy to navigate. This minimises user frustration, reduces support costs and ultimately lets Canvas users focus on what’s truly important, whether that’s calculus, English lit, finance or medicine.
The Canvas App Centre is your gateway to a world of powerful teaching tools. Even the least tech-savvy teachers can easily browse a library of LTI tools and install them with a single click (no technical help required). Powerful tools like Khan Academy, Google Charts, MyLab, Panopto and many more can now be easily installed, allowing teachers to create a truly customised teaching experience.
Learning happens everywhere. That’s why Canvas mobile apps for iOS and Android give teachers and students the tools they need to make it happen, whenever and wherever they are. From speed-marking on iPad to multimedia discussions that allow you to upload videos recorded on your phone or tablet, Canvas takes learning way beyond the classroom.
What if teachers could easily include audio or video comments as part of a course discussion or when marking student work? With Canvas, you can. All you need is a computer or mobile device with a microphone and camera and Canvas does the rest. Multimedia can be attached to personal messages, assignments, discussions and even marked work.
Because Canvas is cloud native, teachers can view, score and provide feedback on student submissions from a computer or a tablet without time-consuming downloads or uploads. And integrated outcomes allow coursework to be connected to competencies, making assessing work easier. When aligned with rubrics, outcomes can even help improve teacher feedback.
Repetition has its place in the learning process, but who needs practice rescheduling due dates? When you create or update an assignment in Canvas, it automatically populates the syllabus, gradebook and calendar, so you can maximise your time by minimising repetitive tasks.
