Canvas is a learning management system. In other words, it is a platform for hosting course content, delivering online quizzes, accepting online assignment submissions, disseminating grades and feedback, and more. All USU students, faculty, and staff have access to Canvas and can login to Canvas at canvas.usu.edu. Instructors and TAs needing help with Canvas can call CIDI at (435) 797-9506.
