The University of Michigan’s web-based learning management system (LMS) for distributing U-M courses over the internet is Canvas.
Canvas provides a variety of tools for communication, sharing materials online, and for the administration of tests, assignments, and surveys. Some courses will utilize many tools while others require just a few, depending on what each instructor selects. All online courses feature a distance learning group which customizes information for online learners.
Canvas is a secure site that students can access once they have registered for a University of Michigan course. For more information, see the Canvas Gateway.
