Why Canvas?

Why Canvas?

Our current distance learning situation has mitigated the adoption of a learning management system: Canvas. This LMS is used not only by high schools but also by colleges and universities to streamline the use of educational technology tools in one place while providing the opportunity for a robust and rigorous academic experience.
