Canvas is Harvard’s web-based Learning Management System. The Canvas platform enables faculty, teaching fellows, and staff to develop and administer course websites with flexibility and ease. It is Harvard’s official online resource for advancing pedagogy, and it provides multiple means of representation in supporting the curriculum.
All GSD courses have a Canvas web presence automatically created for the faculty’s use. Canvas provides features that empower instructors and their teaching assistants to create robust course content, facilitate knowledge sharing and communication, encourage active engagement and interaction, enable assignment and submission of class work, and function as a single portal to all course-related resources.
