It has been really easy to manage grades on the go, saved me a ton of time. With the instructor mobile app I can grade simple assignments in a minute. Saved me time tracking attendance, and provides an up to the minute snapshot of the student's progress.
I have two jobs. One as an instructor at a college and the other as VP of L&D that designs corporate training. In the college setting, it has functionality that is necessary. The gradebook, attendance tracking, assignments, and syllabus are my favorite features. They are intuitive to use for both students and teachers.
The user experience when consuming eLearning is boring, unengaging and a pain in the butt for the instructor to set up. I have used 4 other Learning Management systems in the corporate environment and wish I could use those instead for the actual learning portion. For each module, you build pages. The pages are a rich text editor where you can add photos/videos, links, and text with minimal rich formatting. If yo want any kind of interactivity you need to use a 3rd party authoring software like Articulate or Captivate. Which is great except the way Canvas plays Scorm is kind of wonky and leaves a lot to be desired. So overall, I am able to deliver much better content for my corporate learners rathert than my students because of the LMS. Bummer.
