Overall Satisfaction with Canvas

Canvas is actually being used by my school. Before we moved to Canvas, we have been used Moodle for years and although it is free, it costs a lot to maintain. So we were looking at different options. Canvas came to our sight very quickly and soo we decided to move to canvas. It has been great so far.
  • Great customer support
  • Very clear instructions
  • Powerful features
  • It came with a cost
  • Some of the functions/features can be hard to find
  • Navigation can be more clear.
  • Our teachers can plan their classes on Canvas
  • The students can have easy access to the classes
  • The grading system is great. Makes it easier to grade
  • It increases our professors' productivities
  • It helped students to better track their assignments.
  • It improved interaction between professors and students.
Moodle is open source and it is free. So we can implement our own server with Moodle very easily. But it is not very customizable. When we need a new feature, it is very hard to change as we do not have the ability to change. Canvas has been great help in this because we can actually request features and they will help us.
