Canvas is the Learning Management System used by faculty, staff and students for course administration at Iowa State University. It is most known for its ease of use and mobile friendliness. Our goal is to enhance the learning experience while allowing the instructor and students to focus on coursework rather than system requirements.
CELT coordinates the ISU Online Learning Community (ISU-OLC), Open Labs, a Course Design Institute, the ISU Canvas Conference, and workshops for Quality Matters, a nationally-recognized quality assurance standard.
