It's not about what canvas can do
It's about the amazing
things your school
can do with Canvas
Parents can co-enroll in Canvas schools with their child automatically, allowing them to view grades, upcoming assignments and due dates, missing work and teacher communication. Teachers can send individual, group and course-wide messages to pupils and parents and pupils can communicate safely with teachers and each other.
Canvas is accessible from any computer or mobile device with a Web-standard browser. Canvas supports the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari. This means no end-user software—and no installation or compatibility headaches. Just open your browser, log in to Canvas and you're ready to go.
The Learning Mastery GradeBook provides a dynamic, powerful, fast and easy to understand view of pupil performance in the class. It supports fast filtering by sections, sorting of columns, setting scores, auto-saving, inline feedback, individualized messaging, revision history, etc. Grades collects scores from various tools in Canvas, e.g. SpeedGrader, Quizzes, Attendance and other external tools. Teachers can also enter, track and provide pupil feedback quickly and easily directly from the grade book.
What if teachers could easily include audio or video comments as part of a course discussion or when marking pupil 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 pupil 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.
