Canvas  Canvas by Instructure is Longwood’s Learning Management System. Compared to other products, Canvas is easy to use for students and teachers and incorporates modern multimedia technologies and other popular collaborative tools.

Canvas is administered and supported by the Digital Education Collaborative (DEC). The DEC regularly offers training opportunities for faculty and students that include one hour face-to-face workshops, on-demand virtual training videos and modules, the Longwood Online Technology Institute (LOTI), which is mandatory for all online instructors, and the occasional Lunch and Learn to go over new or updated features.
