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

Grading papers and submitted projects is easier. I can easily highlight and make comments on a student’s paper directly on the grading page. I’m able to pull up a grading rubric and grade on each rubric section which the student can see and track their progress in the course.
