Designed specifically for K-12 teachers and students, Canvas is an easy-to-use, cloud-based learning management system (LMS) that connects all the digital tools and resources teachers use into one simple place. It integrates seamlessly with hundreds of apps, empowering teachers and students with countless tools to make teaching and learning easier and more fun.
Canvas provides students access to homework, digital resources, printable materials, quizzes, and anything else they may need for class. It gives them a way to stay organized and the opportunity to interact with everyone in their classes, including their teachers.
Teachers use Canvas to structure their courses. It gives them the ability to disseminate class information and materials, as well engaging with students through class discussions or direct communication. It also provides an easy way to collect, grade, and return student work.
Canvas provides an easy way for parents to be involved in their child’s day-to-day education. Parents have the ability to see everything within a course that their child can see. Upcoming assignments, graded papers, and class resources are all available to the parent as an observer. While they cannot participate in the class, they can observe all materials.
Observing a student is a two step process:
Step 1: Generate a student pairing code from the student account
- Find your student’s login information in Skyward if you need to do this for them
Step 2: Link the student to a parent account
