About Canvas

Canvas is Sauk's learning management system for hosting online, hybrid, and enhanced courses. Canvas allows teachers to create engaging online learning experiences for students. In Canvas faculty can:

  • create online learning activities such as discussions, quizzes, and assignments.
  • post learning content such as videos, files, and links; or they can create their own pages.
  • communicate with students through email, chat, a web conference tool, and by keeping a course calendar.
  • provide feedback to students by posting grades, tracking attendance, and using video and audio assignment feedback tools.
