Northwestern Information Technology supports creativity and innovation in teaching and learning through the incorporation of Canvas and other educational technologies as an integral part of the educational experience at the University. 

Canvas is a cloud-hosted learning management system (LMS), powered by Instructure, that allows Northwestern instructors and students to deliver course materials, submit assignments and tests, view grades, and create learning activities. Additional Canvas features include full-featured mobile Apps for both iOS and Android, a global calendar, and tools (pilots, extensions, learning apps) that enable two-way communications between instructor and students including text, video, audio, and attachments.
