About Canvas

In order to access the new learning platform Canvas, you first have to log on to Canvas. The platform contains a lot of supportive tools for learning, as for example:

  • Dialogue-based activities, e.g. in discussion fora and conferences.
  • Tools which support collaborative learning processes.
  • Possibilities of peer-learning and feedback
  • Possibilities of notification via the Canvas app and e-mail.
  • Integration with a countless number of learning tools through Canvas App Center
  • Possibilities of embedding 3rd part tools
  • Statistics and an easy insight in the learning activities

Canvas is cloud based and guarantees a high uptime and good response times. Furthermore Canvas can be used in all of the most commonly used browsers. Apps for a number of Canvas basic functions have been developed for mobile devices (Apple and Android products).

The platform is developed by the company Instructure, and you can read and watch much more on the Canvas webpage.
