The Canvas Learning Management System can be used to deliver instructional content, collaborate and communicate online, track and assess student work, as well as facilitate course administration.  Canvas serves as a powerful tool to all classroom types. From fully online courses, to hybrid classroom models such as blended and flipped classrooms, and traditional face-to-face classes, Canvas makes teaching and learning easier.
