Pros

Canvas has a great overview page and is nice that all of your materials are in one place. I appreciated that it was the main form of communication, document location & even some quizzes and tests.

ML

Maria L.

The Graphical user interface is pretty good and visually appealing and the color-coded course help differentiate it from other courses. Timely updates to the participating courses are also helpful.

JC

Jeremiah C.

The overall experience during my last two years of undergraduate school was very pleasant and I sincerely hope that I encountered this software again in graduate school.

Miguel R.

Pros

This was my first experience working with this kind of program, the support team took me through the process and helped me to understand how the system works and how I can use it to my best advantage.

jF

jane F.

The system is simple and easy to use and provides great functionality. Is the perfect platform to introduce E-Learning to our organisation.

CK

Claire K.

Damien and Lee at Course Genius in particular are absolute stand out service providers. The software is very good, very reliable and great value for money.

SW

Sam W.

Cons

Nothing is intuitive, it's extremely hard to change or fix a mistake on an assignment if you make a mistake, grade syncing with our electronic gradebook is very glitchy.

LD

Lorri D.

The parent canvas app is confusing and difficult to navigate. It is hard to discern what assignments are due to strange naming structures.

EB

Esther B.

As a parent, it was difficult to understand where some items were but I feel that was user error and not the platform.

JA

John A.

Cons

Probably a user problem from my side but my pages tend to get a bit jumbled up when I am writing lengthy training modules.

LJ

Liza J.

Formats of documents change ... frustrating ... dot points etc.

si

sadiye i.

Our first attempt at packaging our current in-service courses into online training was complicated, messy and difficult to understand. We needed a simple approach.
