Canvas at ISU
Canvas is the primary learning management system (LMS) at Iowa State University. It gives you the ability to quickly share course materials and provides easy-to-use tools for communication and collaboration between students, instructors, and teaching assistants.
Using Canvas for the first-time
If you’re a new instructor or student in the Iowa State community, there are a number of guides that have been developed to help make Canvas user-friendly. Begin by learning the basics of building a Canvas course, or review the instructor or student guides.
