  • Updating: Need to change a due date? Or publish an assignment? Or fix a misspelling? Canvas allows you to update your course content.
Canvas for parents

For parents Canvas provides visibility into your child’s education at a glance. Canvas allows parents to:

  • view assignment descriptions and due dates
  • set reminders for assignments
  • view assignment grades

Key Features


All assignments, tasks, activities are integrated into the student calendar, dashboard and to their preferred platforms (email, tablet, phone etc).


Instant data, statistics and graphical information on courses, classes and individuals are available from within each course by students and teachers alike.

Learner Ease

To be a successful online learner/teacher should not depend on technical ability, if it takes more than 3 clicks then you are doing something wrong!

Personalised Paths

The ability to access what you need when you need it is critical when learning online. Canvas provides real-time feedback on progress and results in assisting students in achieving their personal best.
