Teaching with Canvas

Faculty can use their Canvas course sites to communicate with students, share syllabi and course materials, create opportunities for collaboration and activities like peer review, social annotations, and asynchronous discussions, and assess student understanding through assignments and quizzes.

Canvas integrates with other educational technologies that faculty might use in their teaching, like social annotation tools, Q&A discussion boards, assessment platforms, and video management tools.

The McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning supports the use of Canvas. Please email us at [email protected] to get help from our instructional designers.
