I used Canvas in my dual-credit course from Champlain and I loved it, especially using rubrics to grade assignments.

We looked at Canvas two years ago when reviewing LMS options, and it was our committee's first choice. Unfortunately they priced themselves out of our reach (30% more than Schoology, which was our choice) but I heard recently that they have come way down (now in line with Schoology Enterprise, ~$9/student/year.) Sounds like they are trying to expand their K-12 user base!

One feature Canvas had at the time that others didn't is some customization of the interface. One feature we WISH Schoology had is synchronization of assignments that are in multiple classes (eg. if one needs to be changed it can be changed once for all sections.)

This comparison is now 18 months old, but may be useful to those exploring LMS.

I hope this helps,

Hi all,

One of our teachers is taking a course through St. Mikes, and she raved about the ease of their new LMS, Canvas. Does anyone have experience in a K-12 school that they could share?

Thanks,
Sue
