The Study Hall

A Canvas Welcome to Wyoming!

Wyoming’s official state motto is “Equal Rights”, and is nicknamed The Equality State because it was the first state to grant women the right to vote. Taking action to help others is something we can get behind at Canvas, because we believe in and design products to provide everyone an equal opportunity for quality education.

Canvas is an online learning management system (LMS) built to simplify teaching and learning by connecting all the digital tools teachers use in one easy place. After a rigorous LMS evaluation process, the Wyoming Department of Education has signed a contract to provide special statewide pricing of Canvas and related platforms Arc and Gauge to all K–20 institutions across the state.

“We found Canvas to be the best fit for us, combining a robust, intuitive, and easy-to-use system with quality people in a dependable support structure for our teachers and staff.”

-Gordon Knopp, Director of Technology for Laramie County School District #1
