Canvas by Instructure

Canvas is Auburn University's official learning management system (LMS), which provides instructors and students with a web-based home for each of their courses. Course content and materials, including syllabi, lecture notes or slides, files and links to external sources, and audio-video content can be made available to students in a secure environment. Canvas also allows instructors to easily communicate with their students, deliver assignments and quizzes online, allows for online submission of student assignments, conduct online discussions, and more.
