Canvas: A new learning experience is here
In spring 2023, UMass Amherst selected as Canvas the official learning management system (LMS) for on-campus and online courses. Some courses are taught in Canvas this fall.
Canvas offers some key benefits for our campus community, including an easy-to-use mobile app, a more accessible and inclusive experience, and a reliable system which connects to other technologies you use at UMass Amherst.
