Instructure Canvas is the primary learning management system (LMS) for academic and other courses used by 10 university divisions. (As a note, the School of Public Health’s CoursePlus and Center for Talented Youth’s Moodle will continue to be used by those divisions.)

The University selected Instructure Canvas as a replacement of our previous system after a comprehensive evaluation process. Thousands of faculty, staff, and students shared their feedback along with an in-depth review by [email protected], Student Disabilities Services (SDS), and the divisions’ teaching and learning centers.

Training and Support

We offer a wealth of help, training, and support resources on Canvas. View the Faculty Resources and Student Resources for more information. Faculty will also have access to live and on-demand training through Canvas (via the Help Menu > Training Services Portal) from April 2022 through March 2023.

Integrations and Tools

Canvas supports many integrations used by our students, faculty, and staff. These include ARES Course Reserves, Panopto, Kaltura, Turnitin, iClicker, and many more. Faculty can also add Zoom links to their course to host synchronous meetings. Learn more about the 3rd Party Tools available.
