"I use Canvas in all of my face-to-face courses, and I wouldn’t do it any other way. I’ve been paperless for over 8 years, and CMS makes me a much more easily organized teacher.

It’s also a really convenient way of helping students get their work in on time and for being held accountable for those deadlines.

When I’m at my best, I post important files we covered in class as well. E-mail function is fantastic, as it archives by student. The learning curve can be high, particularly for setting up assignments, but once you have done it correctly a couple of times, it sticks."

Kate, Humanities
"The gradebook is a bit of a challenge that I’m still working through.

In addition, the fact that not all of our students have laptops in class and I don’t have a projector in all of my classes creates some course fragmentation for me, since I like to show them where they need to be and have them do it at the same time, but that’s just part of my adjustment to a new school setting."
