Getting Started with Canvas

Michigan Tech uses Canvas as its Learning Management System (LMS). (What is an LMS?) Canvas provides instructors and students with a web-based home for each of their courses.  Course content and materials, including syllabi, lecture notes or slides, files and links to external sources, and audio-video content can be made available to students in a secure environment.  Canvas also allows instructors to easily communicate with their students, deliver assignments and quizzes online, allows for online submission of student assignments, conduct online discussions, and more . All Michigan Tech students, faculty, and staff can access Canvas with their standard university userid and password from the Canvas login page.
