Instructure Canvas

The Alamo Colleges use Instructure Canvas (LMS) as the standard platform for delivery of online, hybrid, and web-enhanced classes. To get a successful start with your online classes, we recommend that you attend a one hour training overview or access an online overview. The overview sessions include sections on how to use Canvas tools.  For faculty information on Canvas go to the Instructional Innovation Center website.
