What is Canvas?

Canvas is the Learning Management System (LMS) supported by the University of Houston. All academic courses at the college employ Canvas as an adjunct to face-to-face learning.

Students today rely on anytime-anywhere access to course materials. UHCOP Faculty can use Canvas to present a range of course content materials and information, including syllabi, lecture notes, and handouts; to administer online pre-test, exams, and quizzes; for assignment submissions; or to hold virtual class session.

Regardless of the teaching style, Canvas provides a way to deliver course content virtually to students.
