Canvas Learning Management System (LMS)
A learning management system (LMS) is an application that helps instructors deliver content, administer assignments, communicate with students, manage grades, and many other things. It’s basically the classroom, the gradebook, and the textbook all rolled in one. It is also, most likely, the place you will spend most of your time in an online course. At UNCG, students and faculty use Canvas by Instructure as its LMS.
