Learning Management System (Canvas)

Cal Poly is currently transitioning from PolyLearn to Canvas, a cloud-based learning management system (LMS) that connects students and faculty to their Cal Poly coursework on both desktop and mobile devices. Canvas is available as of Winter 2020 and will be used in parallel with PolyLearn until Fall 2020, when PolyLearn is discontinued. Canvas support is provided by The Center for Teaching Learning and Technology.
