Canvas for Higher Education

Educators and Students Are Always #1 to Us. (Maybe That’s Why We're #1 to Them.)

Educators have been switching on light bulbs over our heads since way before light bulbs were invented. The least we could do for them is deliver the best LMS imaginable. Today Canvas is the most-used LMS, voted #1 by both students and educators. And it's not just the most adopted; it has the highest retention rate and top-ranked implementation services and support. Being #1 is 100% inspired by you.


Flexible, Reliable, Adaptable, & Ready for Tomorrow

Institutions are expanding their blended and online learning programs, and Canvas’ open architecture provides the most engaging, reliable, extensible learning ecosystem for unrestricted pedagogical freedom. How extensible, you ask? We’re talking integrates-with-over-400-edtech-partners extensible.

Mobile, Customisable, & Flexible

Learning happens everywhere. The Canvas LMS has native course and grading apps, so educators and students can teach and learn whenever, wherever.

Canvas also provides an extensive, open API, making it easy for third-party apps to plug right into Canvas, pull from its data, and push data back in. We built a whole app centre to make it even easier for institutions and instructors to browse through loads of LTI apps and install them in a single click. No IT support necessary.
