Canvas is the university’s Learning Management System (LMS). Instructors can post content, assessments, activities, and grades in Canvas while communicating with their students. Students can use Canvas to complete coursework and collaborate with their classmates.
Every course listed in CU-SIS is provided with a Canvas shell. Enrollments are provisioned automatically and will reflect official rosters.
