Canvas App Centre
Course management has never been easier
Repetition has its place in the learning process, but who needs practice rescheduling due dates? When you create or update an assignment in Canvas, it automatically populates the syllabus, gradebook and calendar, so you can maximise your time by minimising repetitive tasks.
Connect assessment with learning goals
Because Canvas is cloud native, lecturers can view, score and provide feedback on student submissions from a computer or tablet without time-consuming downloads or uploads. And integrated outcomes allow connections between coursework and competencies, making assessing work easier. When aligned with rubrics, outcomes can even help improve lecturer feedback.
Make feedback more personal—and more powerful
What if lecturers could easily include audio or video comments in a course discussion or when marking student work? With Canvas, you can. All you need is a computer or mobile device with a microphone and camera. Canvas does the rest. Attach multimedia to personal messages, assignments, discussions and even marked work.
Powerful plugins are just a click away
The Canvas App Centre is your gateway to a world of powerful teaching tools. Even the least tech-savvy lecturers and professors can browse a library of LTI tools—including Khan Academy, Google Charts, YouTube and many others—and install them with a single click. Truly customised teaching experiences, no technical help required.
