Canvas is beautiful and modern. So, so much better than the bloated, clunky D2L, Blackboard, and other learning management systems. It’s fast, most of all.

Thank you so much for facilitating this learning community! Each session I came away with several new ideas that I have been able to try out in my course in the Core this semester. And I have learned about a number of strategies and techniques for active learning that I plan to implement in later versions of my courses. While I wish our discussions could have been longer, you really managed to lead us through a lot of material very efficiently and to stimulate really productive conversations. – ACTIVE LEARNING WORKSHOP
