What is Canvas:
Canvas is Pomfret's learning management system (LMS). Within a Canvas course page, teachers will post all relevant course content (assignments, discussions, announcements, quizzes, syllabus, etc.) as well as enhanced tools and features for communication, collaboration, and assessment. Teachers will utilize the Canvas grade book for both traditional grades and the learning mastery grade book. Canvas allows integrations with many software packages for example Google, Canva for Education, and Ed Puzzle. Canvas is used extensively in both K-12 schools and in higher education.
Students will access Canvas to obtain all course content. This includes finding course resources, assignments, and grades. In may courses students will submit assignments directly into Canvas.
