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:
Canvas is available as an application for both Android and iOS. Search for "Canvas" in the app store that applies to your unit. As a student you use Canvas Student and as a teacher Canvas Teacher. The name of the developer is Instructure. More information can be found in the developers guides for mobile applications.
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 a while before the course becomes visible. It is then the course coordinator who publishes (opens) the course for students. You can list all your courses from Courses and then All courses.
If you have problems logging in to Canvas, unable to see your course (as a student you may have to wait until after the course start date) or any questions about Canvas you can post a case to IT Helpdesk. You can also search for answers on your own in the guide materials from the developers or in our own guides available from the following links:

- Information about Canvas for teachers on the intranet
