Canvas is fast, stable, and well-designed. It is also brilliantly flexible in terms of what it allows me to do for students. It has transformed how I communicate with them. The Announcements feature works brilliantly to keep students informed of day-to-day updates on modules and the Inbox feature means that I mostly communicate with students via Canvas, meaning my actual email inbox deals with non-teaching related messages – a real boon!

I would say to colleagues who may be hesitant to use Canvas to start with something simple. Log-in and have a look around the interface. It’s easy to use, so once you get logged in for the first time you will start to find ways that Canvas can be used in your teaching. After that, if something you want to do isn’t obvious then try one of the drop-in clinics.

Our students are habituated to receiving high quality digital media in their daily life, when they come to university and are greeted with Queens Online they view us in the same way we would view someone still using Windows 95. For those that say that the don’t feel like they want all these bells and whistles I would say that you don’t know what you are missing till you try it!
