Service Description:

Canvas by Instructure logo

Canvas is a new course management and collaborative learning environment for Pitzer College. Each college in the Claremont Colleges Consortium has its own Canvas instance. Canvas is used by faculty and students to deliver course materials, and set up learning activities and collaborate on projects.

The undergraduate colleges, Pitzer, Pomona, Claremont McKenna, Scripps, and Harvey Mudd have enabled federated trust links between schools. This enables students and faculty to login at their home college Canvas and see all of their courses, even those from other colleges.

Claremont Graduate University and Keck Graduate Institute have separate Canvas instances, and credentials are needed from these schools to access their Canvas.
