Canvas is the online learning management system at Jönköping University. From the autumn semester 2020 Canvas has replaced PingPong. 

Canvas is used for teachers and students to interact through a digital medium. From here course material, submissions, groups, announcements and many other things can be managed. Feedback and results on assignments can be displayed here but remember than no grade is final until it appears in Ladok. To be able to use Canvas on your computer you need an updated version of any of the following web browser:

  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Edge
  • Safari

NOTE! To be able to access your course as a student in Canvas you must first register in Ladok. After the registration you can immediately log in to Canvas but it may take up to one (1) working day before the course becomes visible. It is then the course coordinator who publishes (opens) the course.
