Information and Help for Canvas and Angel Learning

Canvas (Beginning Fall 16)

West Valley College uses a learning management system (LMS) for teaching and learning called Canvas. Canvas enables faulty to set up and manage courses in a central location, and provides secure delivery of course content and access to teaching and learning anytime anywhere for online courses.

Canvas allows students to work and collaborate, to view lessons, submit assignments, take exams, communicate with instructors and other students, track their academic performance and activity instantly at login, and to configure, customize and display course reports in a safe password-protected virtual environment.

Canvas is a generally intuitive and easy to use LMS, but if you are a new user, or if you need support, please review the Canvas guides in this website, and spend time familiarizing yourself with all of the tools.
