University of Illinois Springfield Canvas LMS

University of Illinois Springfield Canvas is an online Learning Management System (LMS) at UIS. A Canvas course site is created for every course taught at UIS. All online and blended courses use Canvas, though not all instructors of face-to-face classes choose to use the tool.

Instructors use UIS Canvas to provide course materials, assignments, and other resources for their classes. You may also submit assignments, take quizzes and check current grades.

All UIS courses, even campus-based courses, have a Canvas course site.  If you enroll in an online course, you will access your entire class through Canvas. If you enroll in a campus-based course you may log in to Canvas to access the course syllabus, handouts, or even additional online lectures or discussions.
