Student data insights for student success.

Without face-to-face interaction, it can be difficult to know if students are engaged and on track to achieve targeted academic outcomes. Canvas delivers analytics and reporting that let you understand their activity, interactions, and a whole lot more. It also provides insights you can use to optimize your teaching and help keep students on the right path.
