Canvas by Instructure is a learning management system that simplifies teaching and learning by connecting all the digital tools teachers use in one simple place. Canvas is EASY, OPEN, ADAPTABLE, and SECURE and has a track record of success from kindergarten through high school, and even into college. That’s because it’s at the center of the classroom - streamlining instructional delivery, communication, student tracking, and reporting. Canvas is designed to get out of your way to let you do your thing. Every last feature, every last interface is crafted to save you time and effort and to make teaching and learning easier.
Canvas is a native-to-the-cloud, fully-hosted, all-inclusive, browser-enabled LMS and extensible education technology platform. Hosted on the state-of-the-technology Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud infrastructure and with Instructure’s guarantee of 99.9% system availability, Canvas provides anytime, anywhere 24/7/365 access with mobile support and free mobile apps included in the annual Canvas subscription fee at no additional cost.
Instructure, Inc. is the software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology company that makes smart software that makes people smarter. Its cloud-based Canvas learning management system (LMS) now connects more than 18 million teachers and learners at over 1,200 higher ed and K-12 institutions throughout the world. Through open, usable, cloud-based technologies, Canvas enables easy integration of the content, tools, and services that teachers need and students want. Not surprisingly, listening to users about their needs and wants—then rolling out the most usable, customizable, adaptable, and reliable learning platform (think 99.9% uptime)—makes all the difference when it comes to school-wide LMS adoption. That’s why Canvas is adopted faster and deeper (or, is used in more ways by more users) than any other LMS. So, in the end, investing in 21st century education technology actually makes teaching and learning easier (like it's supposed to).
