Canvas is here! Get prepared.


FAU has decided to join other state universities in Florida and adopt Canvas by Instructure as the new learning management system (LMS). The Canvas platform is known for its user-friendly experience and mobile compatibility. If you have never heard of Canvas, don’t worry! There are a plethora of resources in place to help you get familiar with FAU’s new LMS.
