Introducing Canvas

July 18, 2019 0 comments

We are excited to announce that from Semester 2, 2019 we will be using Canvas as our Learner Management System.

Canvas is a cloud-based Learning Management System that is designed to make teaching and learning easier.

 

Canvas integrates with a range of educational software platforms and creates a single sign-in service for its users. Canvas provides educators, learners & parents / guardians with access to live analytics about student performance and learning habits.

 

Canvas will coexist with Compass on our site, as both software applications still have a role to play in our school software. The fundamental difference is Canvas is about teaching and learning (assignments, assessment) and Compass is about student information and attendance.

DIGITAL LEARNING AT PIC:

Our next step is to better integrate Canvas and Compass so that all users can navigate between the two platforms. 

 

Throughout term 3, as we have done all year, we will continue to work hard to implement Canvas as smoothly as possible. Later in term 3 we will host an information session and send home login information for parents and guardians so that you can access your students courses to see their learning tasks, and any feedback. 

 

By introducing Canvas we are equipping our teachers and our students with the world’s leading LMS, used by over 1 million institutions worldwide.

If you have any queries about Canvas, please don’t hesitate to contact the school and ask to speak with Nathan Cini (Director of Digital Learning and ICT) or a member of the Curriculum Exec.
