The Canvas learning platform offers a mobile-friendly, accessible interface to support teaching and learning. The cloud hosted platform is used at Framingham State University to share course material, assignments, grades, and promote communication. Canvas is used for all course modalities; face-to-face, remote, hybrid and online.

Passport to Canvas for Students

The PASSPORT TO CANVAS self-directed course is a great way for students to learn how to use Canvas. Each module focuses on one Canvas tool. Move through the Modules in order or, open only the Modules you would like to learn more about including:

  • Keeping track of the work you are assigned by your instructor, grades and feedback
  • Organizing all of the learning material your instructor has created
  • Help for staying in touch with other members of your class
