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

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 IT@JH, 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.

Integrations and Tools

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