Pros

The online conference calls which can be made through canvas makes it a lot easier to communicate within groups and with professors a lot easier and makes it like a classroom experience.

Cons

Sometimes messages sent gets lost when you are doing conversations which makes it harder if you are not online throughout the conversation.

This is the best LMS available for free.

Pros

It has all the features you need to manage an online learning environment. The roster setup is easy, the quiz grading system and features available to create assessments is excellent. Also I love the add ons from other common sites such as YouTube, Pearson, and many other platforms.
The canvas community allows you to use other teacher content and integrate into your classroom, especially if you don't have knowledge or expertise in a particular subject area.

Cons

The biggest issue I have experienced with Canvas is deleting or removing individuals from your class roster.

Also it would be nice of Canvas could include a paid subscription outside of the expensive large institution (such as universities) plans that only offer. The smaller enterprise subscriptions would be for teachers or other small business owners that need more space to upload video content, and other larger the documents. The 251MB limit canvas provides for each created course gets used fairly quickly.

Overall I think this is a great product that can use some refining to make it more intuitive for the next generation of student and teacher interaction. Once I was able to get over the learning curve of the product and be able to trust that it is helpful for scheduling important dates it is a good supplementary tool for lessons. It should by no means be used as a replacement for face to face participation. The discussion board needs a lot of work, I would suggest a rating scale like readit or buzzfeeed but even that might be hard because of the small pool of participants.

Pros

The product is helpful for keeping track of work progress, submitting assignments, sharing resources, reviewing grades, messaging teachers and the features continue. It has been a great platform to keep everything centralized and gain access to all of the class work that is populated by the professors. The customizable features are also helpful in regards to the potential of the software itself.

Cons

There are a few things that lengthen the learning curve of this tool and can hinder its effectiveness. One being that because it is so customizable, each professor uses it differently and that makes it harder for the student to know what is where when multiple professors are using it in different capacities. Second is less crucial but can be annoying and that is the notifications don't always disappear after you have read a message. Lastly is the point of customization, which I've also noted as a pro but as a con it can be difficult for discussion boards when the format to submit varies for posts.

Students love the product for the same reason and they can customize their communication preferences. Instructure also has made the integration of the product with other systems easy as well.

We have no problems to share at this point with the product. When issues arise among users from various colleges, they facilitate and truly listen to our concerns.

Way too time consuming and complex to be useful

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

The capabilities of this software are quite impressive but the tedious layout, limited choices, and incessant need to 'jump through hoops' to make it worthwhile far outweigh any value it might otherwise have. The designers of the software considered practically every aspect of what they were intending to do but completely ignored the target audience. We are having weekly training sessions and even after several months, most teachers are struggling with the interface. For example: to create an assignment for a class you must go through a plethora of steps to make the class, including a great deal of information that isn't truly necessary before you can get to the complex task of actually creating an assignment. In other words, EVERY task is simply too time-consuming to make this software of much use to the average teacher. It does interface with Powerschool which makes a great selling point to administrators and parents, but if your teachers are spending an extra hour to hour and half a day, just utilizing this program, what is gained? Frankly, I can do essentially everything needed to implement a classroom through Google Classroom and Google Apps and the time needed to do so is a fraction of what Canvas requires. Bottom line: if you don't mind putting your teachers through a horrendous learning curve and saddling them with tedious and extremely complex software, go with Canvas. If not, I suggest developing your LMS around something with a more simple interface, more forgiving functionality, and quicker to implement. I can say the LMS of Learnmate used in some technology classes isn't really a great deal better but again, why make simple tasks complicated when Google provides a much easier platform.

Pros

The functions available are quite impressive.

Cons

"User Hostile" interface that makes an incredible amount of demands to implement. A large number of items it requires should have and could have a default setting allowing for quicker use.

Advice to Others

Try it before you buy it and let your teachers see the complexity

Good grades.

Pros

There are a few options on how you would like to be notified and how often from this app. It helped me stay on top of my homework because every time an instructor posted I would be notified of the new assignment immediately. The tabs are pretty straight forward and user friendly. It is easy to navigate and find documents when things have been posted. I really enjoy the calendar feature and to do list feature.

Cons

Sometimes when notifications pop up it you can find it from there but when you go into the app looking for something you cannot find what was posted. It may be where the user's posted it but that has been frustrating. Also there are times when notifications do not show up for announcements and I have missed things.

To reduce the distances between the participants and expand the possibilities and technological literacy of all.

Pros

The teaching of the 21st century requires a change in models and approach to learning. The change allows to reeplantear not only the contents of the subjects, moreover, the tools with which the teacher will have to share their experiences. It is very valuable to have a virtual space in which you can group: Class documents, videos, conferences, guides, questionnaires, tests, texts, messaging, links, e-mail, all online. The teacher, in this platform, also has the ability to qualify the different assignments and even make various qualifications in real time. The interaction can also include the representatives, who can also access, if they wish, the platform.
Through the "Collaborations", participants can work as a team their classroom projects, through group editing programs, which can be sent directly to Canvas. The personalization, organization and structure of the modules is very helpful for the participants to experience the different advantages of virtual training.

Cons

The platforms have generalized their use in such a way that it is easy to find them in different stages and school courses, as well as in undergraduate and postgraduate university studies. In the same way, the age of the instructors and of the participants varies considerably. When users are not able to interact with each other easily and quickly, they lose interest, not only for the course, but also for the platform, which translates into a considerable loss of effectiveness and impact of the same.
It would be fantastic if the teachers could have a cheaper version of the platform, but not be "tied" to large organizations, schools and universities, a kind of "private" virtual classroom that is managed and set almost entirely by the teacher, who will only have to enter his participants, in different classrooms, at the same time, and with an accessible cost.

Pros

Our program has been using Canvas for about 10 years now and we are very happy with this software program. Specifically, the SpeedGrader functionality is superb. You can easily view and grade papers with your rubrics embedded into the grading system. The Collaborations feature is also quite robust and allows students to work on a project together via a group editing program (like Google Docs) and submit directly to Canvas. They've really done a good job partnering with other programs to allow communication between software (for example, students can easily submit their papers to Canvas with an embedded plagiarism checking program without having to use each software package independently).

Cons

One negative about the program is that, while you can assign students to groups to complete group projects, you still have to grade them all individually. There isn't (yet) a feature to assign identical grades to all students in the group. As with any program, there are extra features and functions that would be useful, but overall, we're very pleased. The price is steep compared to other course management software, but we find the time savings to be worth the additional cost.

Pros

It is really well organized and allows you to consolidate lots of required things into one platform. Before we used blackboard for syllabus and power points, google calendar, and a separate email client. Now all of those things are in one place and built into canvas, I like that. It is much more seamless. I find canvas to be easier to navigate than blackboard. It is also significantly more aesthetically pleasing.

Cons

I have only been using it for a few months. I really don't have anything bad to say. I like this platform a lot. I prefer it over others I have used in the past.

I use it mainly for editing images, for my business - quick work, done really quickly.

Pros

It is very good tool to edit images or other and publish them on social networks. I mainly use it for that.

Cons

Still the design options need improvement and the user interface too. Some users may find it difficult to work with.

Have free full tools for the creation of my air conditioning calculation course, as well as the ease of interacting with students.

Pros


It has a set of available tools that makes the preparation of courses more complete and attractive. There is enough material on the web regarding its use, no specific servers are required, its use is through the cloud. Available your mobile browsing.

Cons

Depends on an institution for registration, its complexity is derived from the multiple tools available in shower platform.
