Pros

It has been good, and I would highly recommend it over the previous system we used. I like most of the newer features and believe it will continue to get better over time.
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.
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.

Pros

From there, setting up the courses and managing/tracking users was easy to do. We love that the software was so flexible for us to add into our infrastructure for an affordable price.
I'm grateful I haven't had to contact customer service for very much. The ease of use and results have been great.
I loved the ease of use, the options that the software has built in and the customer service and support are tops, they were always so kind and helpful.

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.
The parent canvas app is confusing and difficult to navigate. It is hard to discern what assignments are due to strange naming structures.
As a parent, it was difficult to understand where some items were but I feel that was user error and not the platform.

Cons

We had 10 ipads in our booth, and had to close out and reopen the browser after every user to avoid having a problem. This was after several tech people worked on the issue.
Some time the appearance of the main window is confuse.
The only flaw is that the platform doesn't fully support scorm files yet.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Canvas is a great tool for LMS with free and paid options. The features are self-evident and rather intuitive.

Canvas is very easy to use within the interface for asynchronous learning. The materials and resources an be easily accessed and organized for ease of student use.

Cons

It is not the most sophisticated LMS on the market, but it is easy, and has options for all users and budgets.

Great LMS System and Easy to Use

Reviewed 3 years ago

Great LMS system for any school out there and super easy to learn how to use!

Pros

I love how easy it is to use (I am taking a summer courses that uses Canvas as the LMS). I also love the iOS app because it is so easy to use when I am away from my computer.

Cons

What is inconvenient about the iOS app is that there are certain features of the website (such as viewing videos) that I cannot use on the app. I would love if all the features are available on the app as well!

Free account user

Reviewed 6 years ago

This is the best LMS available for free.

Pros

It has all the features you need to manage an online learning environment. The roster setup is easy, the quiz grading system and features available to create assessments is excellent. Also I love the add ons from other common sites such as YouTube, Pearson, and many other platforms. The canvas community allows you to use other teacher content and integrate into your classroom, especially if you don't have knowledge or expertise in a particular subject area.

Cons

The biggest issue I have experienced with Canvas is deleting or removing individuals from your class roster. Also it would be nice of Canvas could include a paid subscription outside of the expensive large institution (such as universities) plans that only offer. The smaller enterprise subscriptions would be for teachers or other small business owners that need more space to upload video content, and other larger the documents. The 251MB limit canvas provides for each created course gets used fairly quickly.

Still takes a learning curve - training is better than anything else but could be improved. I think they assume the institutions are providing the training, which is rarely the case for adjunct faculty.
