The university Learning Management System is the online center of your academic work. Canvas by Instructure is Tulane's Learning Management System (LMS). Canvas' platform provides more modern, mobile, and user friendly features for collaboration, engagement, and assessment. We are especially excited that Canvas allows us to integrate our digital and academic lives without sacrificing the privacy of either. We are constantly adding new features, so keep an eye out for new announcements about your LMS.
