what is canvas?
canvas is snu’s new externally hosted learning management system (lms) for online, hybrid and face-to-face courses. it is completely replacing both moodle and caped canvas.
canvas is integrated with banner and has automated updates that run twice a day. this means that if banner-based changes are made (status changes, enrollments, withdrawals, etc.) they will automatically be updated in the next data load.
