Canvas is the online course management system used at MCC. It is the primary means of communication for online courses and is often used to supplement face-to-face classes.
Canvas provides instructors with a platform to electronically deliver class content using online tools for functions such as managing assignments, providing assessments, facilitating discussions and posting or viewing grades.
