Open, Reliable, & Secure

Openness is in our DNA.

Born in the Cloud, Canvas LMS led the SaaS revolution in education and continues to offer 99.9% uptime, third-party-validated security, and support that keeps our customers on board for the long haul. Our platform was built on the belief that everyone in education should have open access to high-quality information, content, data, and resources. So, that's what we do.

Forget Downtime

Cloud-Based (and Born)

Our multi-tenant Software as a Service (SaaS) architecture supported by Amazon Web Services provides seamless hosting, security, backups, and hands-free updates requiring no downtime. And with world-class support at every turn, you can focus less on the administrative work and more on designing the learning experience you want to deliver.

Integrate to innovate

Your Learning Ecosystem. Your Way.

We believe no legendary learning platform should try to be everything to everybody. Instead, we empower educators to build a learning ecosystem with all of the functionality they need and none they don’t. Our platform is built on an open API, seamlessly integrates with most Student Information Systems, and works with 500+ like-minded partners to ensure you have access to the technology, tools, and services that keep the learning going.
