Introducing Canvas LMS
Wilmington University replaced Blackboard with Canvas at the start of the Fall 2019 term. The upgrade to the Canvas Learning Management System brings faculty and students an easier, faster, and more engaging online experience.
The Canvas LMS allows instructors and students to access course materials, submit assignments, communicate and collaborate online. It has various tools for delivering learning content, engaging online learners, and measuring their performance.

Experiencing web browser issues?
If Canvas is not working properly on your computer, it is likely because of the web browser you are using. Specifically, if you use Edge or Internet Explorer, the Canvas system will not load up properly. Canvas works best in the latest stable release of Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. These are both free downloads and most computers already have at least one of them installed. Visit the Browser Support Page to learn more about which versions of web browsers are supported.
