Canvas is a Learning Management System (LMS) by Instructure that allows LC State to build the digital learning environment that meets the unique challenges faced by our institution. Canvas simplifies teaching, elevates learning, and eliminates the headaches of supporting and growing traditional learning technologies.

Canvas App

The Canvas Teacher App allows staff to facilitate their courses on the go. This app provides quick access to grading, communicating, and updating—three of the most frequent course facilitation tasks for teachers through Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, and Quizzes.  When you are building a course in Canvas you are a teacher.

Download the Canvas Teacher app on Android and iOS devices.

When you are doing training through Growing With Canvas you are a student.  If you want to access this training through the app, or are enrolled as a student or have access to any class as a student you will need to download the Canvas Student app.
