What is Canvas and how do I get started using it?

Canvas is SLCC’s learning platform or learning management system (commonly referred to as ‘LMS’). Some of the tools and features of Canvas include: a gradebook, discussion forums, web conferencing, quizzing, announcements, messaging, speedgrader (tool to easily grade assignment submissions), syllabus, calendar, and much more.

If you are teaching online, this is where your course is housed. If you teach face to face or hybrid courses, this system is a great way to organize your course and communicate with students. Most departments require faculty to use Canvas.

For additional Canvas help, contact (801) 957-5125. You may also be interested in the Canvas User Designation, an 8 hour course focused on the key features of Canvas. Adjunct Faculty may be compensated for their time. Learn more by reviewing the Faculty Development Catalog and Workshop Schedule
