Hi guys! This week we’re talking about the thing every student right now is probably using the most (besides Zoom) … Canvas. Canvas is a website designed for students to find all of their coursework, and assignments on, while providing students access to all of their classes in one spot.

Unfortunately, it definitely takes a little bit of getting used to. You need at least a few days to figure out where everything is. But after that, it’s pretty easy. However, compared to Google Classroom, it could be better.

Google Classroom was the main hub that most teachers used up until two or three years ago. I am a huge fan of it as it is fun, interactive, and very easy to navigate.

Canvas on the other hand, is a bit more dull, and is there solely for its purpose: accessing material, and turning work in. However, I’ve been told that Canvas makes grading much easier for teachers. 

Canvas is helpful, because no matter if you’re virtual or face to face, it gives you one designated spot to access all of your courses.

 See y’all next week 🙂
