Canvas (Instructors)

Overview

Canvas is AU's learning management system. It provides instructors with a password-protected system to provide students with course materials and create learning experiences through tools like discussions, assignments, conferences, and quizzes. Canvas is used for both on-campus and online classes.

ITS provides support for instructors through the Instructional Resource Center (IRC). If Canvas misbehaves, the IRC wants to know about it. Additionally, the IRC is prepared to:

  • Answer questions
  • Create extra courses (all academic courses are automatically created)
  • Merge course sections
  • Provide training sessions and consultations with instructors

Departments may also use Canvas for training and organizational purposes. Staff members are welcome to request help from the IRC.

Students needing help should visit the Canvas (Students) service page.
