Canvas is the online learning management system that hosts our online and hybrid courses, and it can also be used to take attendance for traditional face-to-face classes! You can post course materials like your Syllabus, class announcements, assignments, quizzes, and grades into Canvas, but you must also enter final grades into PAWS Self Serve. PAWS Self Serve is the online student information system we use for student registration, drops, and final grades. Check out the tutorials below to learn more!
