Canvas is the Learning Management System (LMS) used by UW-Green Bay to facilitate online learning and instruction. It is the central hub of the Digital Learning Environment (or DLE); most of the instructional tools in the DLE integrate into Canvas to create a unified platform. Canvas is used to deliver digital content and facilitate online interaction as both the main platform for fully online courses and as a supporting tool for in-person offerings.

Missing a course?

  • If you're missing a course be sure to check your Courses All Courses area in Canvas. Instructors and students can customize their Canvas dashboard by "favoriting" courses, and when new courses appear they may not be listed on the Dashboard, rather they will appear in the Courses All Courses area.
  • New instructors who do not have "Sandbox Courses" (template courses) in Canvas should contact DLE@UWGB.EDU.
  • Instructors who need more "Sandbox Courses" (template courses) can create their own.
  • Students: please check with your instructors to determine which platforms they are using. If your courses are not showing up as expected, please consult this document.
