Canvas for Educators

Teaching and learning first. Always.

Faculty are the most important factor affecting student success in higher education. So you need technology that supports and enhances all you have to offer as an instructor, whether you’re in class, online, or both.

We have you covered.

Higher education is evolving, with ever-higher expectations from both educators and students. So it’s essential to enable a digital classroom that goes beyond the physical campus to keep students engaged with learning and support them in achieving their academic goals.

Student Success



Real skills for whatever comes next.

Studies show career-readiness is students’ #1 priority in higher education. Our platform keeps them engaged with custom, stackable pathways that help them navigate their academic and co-curricular journeys while providing a roadmap for acquiring new skills and competencies. At the same time, e-portfolios allow students to curate and showcase their achievements and competencies for potential employers.

Data and insights you can act on.

Get analytics and reports that let you understand students’ activity, interactions, and a whole lot more. All in rich visual dashboards with up-to-the-moment details. So you can quickly see what’s working and what can be improved. And do something about it when it matters most.

We plan to use Canvas Data to see trends and patterns which will inform our learning design and delivery. This is very exciting as we are now asking ourselves what questions are important and what data is critical.
