Changes often force us to adapt in ways we’ve never experienced, which can be a major driver of personal (and even professional) growth and development.


Canvas offers students the following improvements:

  • A mobile app that allows students to access courses, submit assignments, participate in discussions, and view their grades 
  • A more learner-centered approach 
  • A clean, intuitive design with less "clicks"
  • A current to-do list viewable per single course or for all current courses 
  • All courses will be saved within the system (courses will not be deleted) 
  • Course modules designed for better organization of content and assignments 
  • A synchronized calendar that is aligned with the syllabus and course modules 
  • The ability to link the Canvas calendar to a calendar app 
  • Vastly improved content management tools 
  • The ability to record and add video within the course 
  • An open platform that allows instructors to use a multitude of third-party apps 
  • Continuous updates and significant changes to the system can be scheduled between quarters to avoid interruptions
