Canvas for Students

Queen’s University are introducing Canvas, a brand new University-wide Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) to on-campus and online distance learning students. Canvas is a modern VLE, similar to other VLEs such as Moodle or Blackboard and will be used to support learning and teaching activities.

Canvas was used during AY2018/19 by a select number of modules, as we prepare for University-wide implementation from September 2019. A small number of students were enrolled on 177 modules during AY2018/19. If you have not yet used Canvas, you will be using it during AY2019/20.

In partnership with the Students’ Union, we are planning a number of Canvas orientation sessions in September 2019 to show you all the wonderful things that Canvas can do.  Details of events will be available shortly so keep an eye out, and we look forward to hearing what you think of Canvas.

The Queen’s Online VLE (QOL) will continue to be available to you for any of your modules that are not included in Canvas Implementation during the 2019/20 academic year. Your School will be able to advise you of any alternative systems that may be used for delivery of your modules.

In the meantime, you may be interested in learning more about Canvas. A number of useful Canvas guides and resources are linked below.
