Canvas @ Yale Support

Canvas helps instructors organize and present their course content online, enabling them to create digital learning environments for their students in support of in person, residential remote and blended course offerings. Canvas is primarily used for official courses offered through the University Registrar’s Office, generating between 2300-2500 courses each term. Canvas provides tools to share a syllabus or expanded course description through the Yale Course Search website, as well as to upload assignments, create quizzes, grade completed work, place readings on Course eReserves, and much more.
