Students and instructors are satisfied with Canvas, the UW’s learning management system, but survey results suggest there is a further opportunity to expand and deepen use of the tool’s features to enhance teaching and learning. Results reflect input from 648 UW instructors and 4,670 students from all three campuses who completed the spring 2017 survey. Exploring how training for instructors is delivered and how central support services could work more closely with departmental support may be key to expanding use of Canvas by faculty.
