Canvas Training for Students


Canvas is Bellevue College’s “Learning Management System” or “LMS”. It enables instructors to build and maintain a secure workspace to share course content, communicate with students, provide online learning activities and assessments, and keep track of their students’ progress. Before getting started, familiarize yourself with Canvas through one of the workshops below. These workshops are geared towards the student experience and cover the basic concepts that are used in most Canvas sites at Bellevue College.
