Canvas – Learning Management System
Purpose: Online assignments, assessments, and information that students can access at anytime.
Teachers use Canvas as an online extension of their classroom. Teachers can opt to have students complete assignments, quizzes, and tests in this system. These types of assessments can be as simple as to check for understanding at the end of a lesson or as a unit test. Canvas is also used by teachers to keep resources such as a course syllabus, instructor notes, study guides, and more. Note: Although students may be completing assignments, quizzes, and tests in Canvas, please remember that ALL final grades are recorded in Synergy.
