In Detail

Canvas LMS is an open source Learning Management System (LMS) which offers an extensive and vibrant range of features to allow its users to create and manage online learning platforms for their students.

We will take you from having no previous experience using Canvas to creating and publishing your very own course that your students can use and explore. From building a simple course to adding in assignments and quizzes, we cover everything that you will need to get your Canvas course up and running.

Starting with setting up your Canvas profile and navigating the first page, you'll quickly begin creating and customizing your own courses for your students to use. Make your course more interactive by adding in media and audio, allow your students to discuss topics by creating discussion boards, and build weighted assignment systems so that you can manage your entire class easily. We also show you where to go for more help and introduce you to the numerous resources available for course inspiration.
