What is CourseWorks (Canvas)?

CourseWorks (Canvas) sites make it easy for instructors to communicate with their students, and to post their syllabus, course objectives, and textbooks. Courseworks (Canvas) is built on Canvas, which is a trusted, open-source learning management system that’s revolutionizing the way we educate. Through open, usable, cloud-based technologies, Canvas enables easy integration of the content, tools, and services that instructors need and students want.
