Canvas is a learning management system (LMS) that allows you to communicate and collaborate with students and provides a place for you to post course content, manage activities, and provide feedback to your students. By design, Canvas is a flexible tool that can help you support learning in face-to-face, hybrid, and online courses.

UMKC is currently undergoing a transition from Blackboard to Canvas. This free one-hour online workshop is designed to introduce faculty to Canvas. At the end of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Customize their Canvas course site
  • Communicate with their students
  • Make their course available to students
  • Add and organize content
  • Create activities and assess students

To sign-up for a live training, visit the UMKC Online Training Calendar.
