Canvas Features

How does Canvas compare to other learning management systems?

For both instructors and students

Especially for instructors

  • Reliable student view
  • SpeedGrader tool for quick and easy online grading
  • Real-time graphic analytic reporting so instructors can easily monitor course and student activity
  • Rubrics tool for setting expectations and evaluating performance
  • Gradebook for easy input, organizing gradable assignments together for weighting, and customizable grading scheme

Instructor Feedback

My experience with Canvas has been positive. I am working without issues in Canvas and all functions I used in Blackboard are available in Canvas. Students have not noticed any difference.
