Canvas

http://instructure.github.io/
Educational courseware/learning management system

Canvas is a feature-rich learning management system.


This page describes the free/libre program Canvas which you can install in your own computers. There are also online services which operate by running Canvas, but we don't recommend that way of using software. The user community can check whether to trust running a free program. There is no basis for trusting a service run by a company or by strangers. You can read more about this issue here:[1]
