Overall Satisfaction with Canvas

We used it as a Learning Management System--I posted assignments and grades on Canvas, and students could use it to check their daily assignments, future assignments and assessments, and their grades. We used it across the whole school, so it was a uniform way for students and teachers to keep track of assignments and progress.
  • Serves as online gradebook
  • Helps students keep track of daily assignment
  • Helps students keep track of grades
  • Full school calendar/events
  • Teachers seeing student grades in other classes
  • Grade tracking
  • Assignment posting
  • Easy accessibility from teachers, students, and parents
  • Keeps teachers and parents informed about grades
  • Helps students stay on track
Canvas is a stronger platform. I used it as a teacher AND as a student in graduate school, and it is just the most put-together, professional version of a learning management system that I've used or seen. I do assume that Canvas is more expensive than its competitors, which would be the main reason that my school does not currently use it.

Would you buy Canvas again?


Canvas is really the premier Learning Management System in my opinion. I assume it is a more expensive option, although I'm not involved in any decision-making/financial planning at my school. But in terms of its ability to allow students and teachers to track assignments and grades, it's a fantastic platform.
