Canvas is Temple University’s Learning Management System (LMS). All online courses and most face-to-face courses use Canvas to host discussion boards, assignments, link to videos, keep track of grades, and more.  When a Canvas course is structured well, faculty create a positive online environment for students, where expectations are clear and assignments are easy to find. By placing material on Canvas for students to review prior to class, faculty can use classroom time for active learning strategies and other engaging activities that take learning to higher levels.

Faculty: Please contact the Online and Digital Learning Department to create your Canvas course or to receive Canvas templates.
