What are the best aspects of this product?
Let's start from a student's perspective: They find it very easy to follow dates, because they have a separate calendar for every module. All of the information relevant to them is stored in one place, and they use their mobile apps to access it wherever they are. Teachers, on the other hand, fancy online grading with crocodoc, creating paper rubrics and reusing old materials, linking respondus, and reapplying old questions for convetional and online exams. With all statistics available, they appoint dates for every course section separately. I am not surprised that the popularity of the product is growing so fast.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
Online grading is an exceptional feature, but our teachers are not very satisifed with the Gradebook. According to them, it is very difficult to keep grades unaffected by column modifications, and absence is calculated automatically. They would like to see modules filled with different colors, instead of the small clouds that students don't even notice (they believe it is the main reason why stundents miss on some of their announcements).
What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?
Canvas is great for respecting deadlines, and it streamlines communication between students and teachers even when they're not in class. Overall, students are showing much better results.
