Canvas is browser-based and works on PCs, Macs, phones, and tablets – anywhere you can find an internet connection!

SPSCC uses Canvas in all courses to provide course engagement, online learning activities, grading, streaming media, discussions, and more.

Starting up with a new Learning Management System can be daunting. If you're transitioning from another LMS, you'll have questions about how to do things you already know; if you're new to online instruction, you need a quick path to get your course up and running.

The State Board for Technical & Community colleges offers a fully-featured Canvas training, about 20 hours of facilitated asynchronous learning.
