Canvas LMS is the online environment that simplifies and enhances the teaching and learning experience. Canvas is WCM's software solution for the delivery of instructional content in the MD and Graduate School programs where it is integrated with the Jenzabar SIS to synchronize courses and enrollments from the registration system. Canvas is also used by various departments for training programs, student orientation, and HotSpots (general resource websites). Canvas LMS is used in fully in-person courses, fully remote courses, and hybrid (in-person/remote) courses.
