Learn how Canvas is changing the face of education one institution at a time.
Boosting teacher adoption with better tools.
Since Rider University switched to Canvas from its previous LMS, faculty adoption has doubled as support requests have declined. Faculty say it’s all because Canvas is fun to use.
Breaking down walls, opening
doors, turning lights on. Canvas rekindled Cheryl Yeatts’ passion for teaching while also creating some lightbulbs-turning-on, walls-breaking-down, connections-being-made magic with her students.
Making a 1:1 initiative a

Empowering students, giving
them a (literal) platform. Canvas helps students control their own educational destiny. Just ask the Rockingham school district students, who found (and shared) their voices in a whole new way.
Storming the gates and
democratizing education. David Wiley, an openness evangelist, takes on academic elitism and talks about how Canvas can help teachers reach more people than ever.
Reaching more students,

Affecting students’ experience with
technology and positivity. As part of her school’s 1:1 initiative, Virginia Watson uses Canvas for “virtually everything,” flipping her classroom, going paperless, and teaching students “life is good.”
Extending the classroom by
turning it upside down. Professor Cynthia Furse flipped her engineering courses Canvas style. Students watch lectures at home, then come to class ready to engage.

students with autism. Susan Gjolmesil wanted to give students with autism at Bellevue College an educational experience tailored to their needs.
Making the switch,
going all-in. “It just works.” “It’s easy to use.” “It lives up
to high hopes.” These are just some of the reasons San Jose State University switched
