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

It is now seamless and very useful. Our parents are very appreciative of the improved communication we now offer as well as the mobile app that lets them more easily track their child's progress.
It is very user friendly and affordable for small schools. Notable: Teacher Pages which have been very Covid Friendly, great report section and parent friendly app.
I particularly am grateful for the patience and knowledge of the customer care resps. No matter how simple or trivial my questions or issues may be, they are very gracious 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

There are no features that are too hard to use. I was not here when this program was integrated.
Also, the statements for the parents can be confusing.
Since I'm beginning to learn a little more of the software, I can not make an accurate comment about what I dislike least about the software.
