Canvas is the Learning Management System at CWRU, providing campus members the tools and resources needed for in-person and online teaching and learning. Canvas includes tools instructors and students have come to depend on, such as assignments, announcements and tests, while offering new time-saving features such as drag-and-drop course interfaces and planning tools like "what-if" grades. Integrations such as AllyTurnitin and Echo360 offer tools that make the most of systems supported at CWRU. Designed from the ground up to meet the requirements of modern students and instructors, Canvas's tools are designed to be used online, on mobile, and on tablet. Canvas is a cloud-native system, offering reliable uptime and automatic updates, bringing users relevant and useful new features.
