Canvas is the Learning Management System adopted by the iSchool and University of Washington starting in Autumn 2011. It is widely used to communicate with students in all areas related to coursework (syllabi, assignments, grading, etc.).

The Online Learning Team maintains a fantastic course about using Canvas and related technologies here. On this page, you can find resources and tutorials to help you navigate your way through the tools used as part of online learning at the iSchool.
