Canvas Tutorials


What is Canvas?

Canvas is a web-based learning management system (LMS) designed to support MiraCosta's online courses. Further, Canvas was selected by faculty and students in spring 2016 as the best choice for MiraCosta’s course management system. Until summer 2018, MiraCosta will be in transition and some classes will be in Canvas, some in Blackboard, and some in Moodle. By summer 2018, all MiraCosta classes will use Canvas. For information about our current online courses, please visit our Distance Education website.
