At the Neosho School District, we are proud to utilize Canvas as our primary online learning platform. Canvas is a comprehensive digital learning management system designed to enhance student education and streamline the learning experience. With its user-friendly interface and robust features, Canvas empowers students to engage with their coursework, collaborate with peers and access educational resources all in one place.

Course Organization: Canvas provides a centralized hub for students to access their courses and assignments. Each course has its dedicated space where students can find important course materials, syllabi, learning objectives and additional resources shared by their teachers. The organized structure of Canvas ensures that students can easily navigate their courses and locate the necessary information.
Assignment Submission: With Canvas, students can conveniently submit their assignments online. Teachers can create and distribute assignments through the platform, allowing students to upload their completed work directly. This feature eliminates the need for physical submissions and ensures that assignments are securely submitted on time.

Students can engage in meaningful conversations with their classmates, ask questions, share insights and participate in instructor-led discussions. This interactive feature promotes active learning and provides an avenue for students to express their thoughts and engage in academic discourse.
Grades and Feedback: Canvas offers a comprehensive gradebook that allows students to track their progress throughout the semester. Teachers can easily input and update grades, providing students with real-time feedback on their assignments and assessments. Students can view their grades, track their academic performance and identify areas for improvement.
Resource Center: Canvas serves as a digital resource center where teachers can share course materials, readings, multimedia content and external links. This central repository ensures that students have access to all the necessary resources to support their learning.
