Canvas Learning Management System

Canvas is a web-based course-management system that allows students and faculty to use online materials and activities to complement their on-campus class. The system enables faculty to provide students with course materials, discussion boards, virtual chat, online quizzes, grades, and more. How Canvas is used in a course at Mills varies by course and by instructor.
