Canvas is the Learning Management System (LMS) used at Scottsdale Community College (SCC) and all of the Maricopa Community Colleges except Rio Salado College. The SCC Math Department uses Canvas as an initial landing page and then uses MOER as an LMS. Instructors can use Canvas to host course content and teach online, live online, hybrid or simply upload course materials as a support for in-person classes (web-enhanced). Canvas is intuitive and easy to use!
