Canvas LMS

Canvas learning management system help for students

The Canvas learning management system was purchased by Tech for campus-wide use and is administered by the Academic Center for Technology (ACT). It is used by the NMT Distance Education Program to deliver course content. While ACT uses Canvas to link to live and/or recorded lectures, any additional content on Canvas is provided by the instructor.
