Distance Education Technologies
Canvas is a web-based learning management system (LMS). Every credit course and their student enrollments are automatically populated into Canvas every hour daily. Faculty may use Canvas to teach fully online courses or to enrich their classroom teaching.

To request a site for an organization, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
