I love that Canvas allows me to create beautiful, eye catching ads with ease. I never thought myself much of an ad designer but Canvas makes it easy to advertise my business and stay on budget.
I loved everything about this software. The calendar and announcement features were fantastic as well as the communication interface.
Canvas has great customer service if you ever have a question. Otherwise, this is a great LMS for universities because it is easy to create modules for each project throughout the semester.


Because Canvas has so many features, it can be confusing for teachers to use and learn. Teachers will have to take the time to learn how Canvas works so they can avoid confusing students.
Canvas can be difficult to use if the person on the other side has trouble. It's difficult to explain how to use it to someone who is technologically challenged.
The calendar feature is pretty useless on the app because it is always confusing. It can also be annoying when I am about to finish a timed assignment.
