Online learning (web-enhanced, hybrid, and fully online courses) at the Alamo Colleges is powered by Canvas, the only LMS native to the cloud. Cloud hosting provides other benefits over traditional dedicated hosting, including exceptional speed, increased security, scalability, and more uptime. Canvas takes advantage of Web 2.0 technology, HTML 5 and the latest programming methods to deliver a modern, open learning platform ideally suited to today’s educational environment.
Learning happens everywhere. That’s why Canvas mobile apps for iOS and Android give students and teachers the tools they need to make it happen whenever and wherever they are. From SpeedGrader for iPad to multimedia discussions that allow you to upload videos recorded on your phone or tablet, Canvas takes learning way beyond the classroom.
Education should be available to all students equally. Canvas was Gold-level certified by the National Federation of the Blind, faster than any other LMS. Canvas adheres to the latest ARIA specifications, avoids problematic content (like Flash) and even converts math equations to MathML automatically—making Canvas a highly accessible educational platform suitable for all learners and educators.
