What is Canvas?

Canvas is DSU’s learning platform, developed by Salt Lake City-based Instructure. It is used by all public higher education institutions (and many K-12 districts) in Utah.

Canvas is known for its user-friendly online environment and ability to easily connect instructors and students both in and out of the classroom. All DSU faculty have been asked to use Canvas to post the course syllabus, in providing you with feedback and scores on assignments, exams and other learning activities, as well as to inform you of class announcements and messages (Inbox).

For online classes, additional features of Canvas are commonly used including the discussion board, conferencing, announcements, chat, and course and personal calendars.
