I like that it is extremely user friendly and can be figured out quickly. It makes online learning less intimidating.
It is expensive to use as a platform for our start up school.
Try the demo or find a student who uses it to let you explore.
Ben from Larry H. Miller Sports and Entertainment
The ease of use for learners, teachers, and admins is hard to beat. There is so much functionality with very little work in maintenance.
Its hard to find something really bad. The only thing I can think of is if you want customization for an organization, the thresholds for users is maybe a bit high.
If you have any sort of learning institute within your organization, whether corporate or not, this can be a useful tool. If you have classes that involve coursework over time, this is the best way to organize the course, distribute information to the learners, and have learners submit work and interact with each other and the instructor.

We began using this product just a short six months ago. It has changed the way our company does business and performs job duties. From the moment I contacted Canvas to this very day, they have gone above and beyond to help us with all our needs. Canvas is a very innovative company and goes the distance to ensure the satisfaction of us customers.
Canvas is consistently working on updates and upgrades to the product to meet customers' needs.
Inform your representative of what you would like to achieve in regards to better efficiency in your company or your work. They know a lot about this product and can help in ways you never thought they could.
Joe from United Hoisting & Scaffolding Corp
I like the ability to take any piece of paper, turn it digitally, and make it seamless for us and our employees. We look more professional on projects, and there is no more losing papers.
I can't say that there's anything that I don't like.
Work with the crew to create your sheets. This is similar to any other program you put in place in that if you don't use it, it cannot help you. Create your sheets, learn it, use it, and worry about other things.
