“I think Canvas is a great tool for the classroom. I enjoy how user-friendly it is and how it allows you to keep everything in one place. No excuses like ‘you never said that’ or ‘I never got that handout.’ Also, if a student misses a class or is home sick [or] at sports they can be up to date with assignments or due dates.”

Hannah Horigan,
Art Teacher

University of Colorado

“I've worked in Academic Technology for 7 years now, and used 7 different LMSs from various points of view including: student, support, administrator, and instructor. After all of this I can say that Canvas is, unequivocally, the best. So often I catch myself thinking 'How did I ever survive before Canvas?'”

“It feels great to throw off the constraints of more traditional black-box systems, in favor of one that isn’t afraid to share its power through a well-documented open API, access to QA servers so we can deploy solutions suited to our own needs with confidence, and a community of users who’ve felt similarly energized by this platform.”

“Our students have learned a lot more about Atlantic History–Poseidon, Neptune, Ariel & Prince Eric, Spongebob–in our 12 months with Canvas (underwater edition) than in years and years with our previous ULMS (underwater learning management system), which was as clunky and unintuitive as trying to swim with human feet. LOL.”

Arthur Curry

“Since we all disappeared mysteriously into this mythical vortex of time and space, we’ve felt disconnected from the world. Canvas has really helped us to connect with each other and learn more about our situation, as well as different survivors’ respective areas of expertise. Also, if you are reading this: SOS!”
