The Canvas LMS Systems’s Advanced Possibilities in Course Design and the Usage of Evaluation Informal, Non-formal and Informal Education
From the 2016’s academic year, the Eötvös Loránd University, in addition to the Moodle framework, also enabled teachers to use the OpenSource version of the Canvas LMS, not only for courses related to formal education but for course-based or even open courses (MOOC). An essential aspect of choosing the framework was to have built-in features which support advanced approaches to the course management and evaluation (e.g.: teamwork, peer re-view, advanced module organization, student differentiation, collaborative opportunities, outcome-based education, rubrics). In my article, besides presenting the usage of the mentioned functions in education, I also summarize the statistics of the usage of this system as well as the teacher's feedback.
