“Canvas is user-friendly and intuitive. The Canvas user guide is extensive and extremely helpful, with a plethora of how-to pages for instructors. The user guide includes screen grabs and step-by-step instructions for almost every aspect of the CMS. I was an early adopter of Canvas and didn’t go through any of the Canvas training, yet I found Canvas easy to use with the extensive instructions in the Canvas guides.” - Dr. Christine Dobrowolski, Kinesiology and Recreation
