About Canvas!

This fall, Mission College will no longer be using ANGEL as its learning management system (LMS), and will be moving to a new (LMS) called Canvas. Canvas allows faulty to develop and manage online and face-to-face courses, and provides students with secure access to course content anywhere, and anytime, they have access to the Internet. Canvas even works on mobile devices! Canvas allows students to work and collaborate, to view lessons, submit assignments, take exams, communicate with instructors and other students, track their grades and course activity, and to configure, customize and display course reports in a safe password-protected virtual environment.

Its easy to use Canvas, but if you are a new user, or if you need support, please review the Canvas guides in this website, and spend time familiarizing yourself with all of the tools.

You can access the Canvas log in screen at: wvm.instructure.com
