The University of Auckland is a Canvas Campus!

Learn more about Canvas and the benefits of our new LMS for students and teachers.

Welcome to the Canvas website! From Semester 1, 2016, all courses at the University of Auckland will be delivered via Canvas, which replaces CECIL as our Learning Management System (LMS). We are proud to be the first University in Australasia to adopt Canvas and we look forward to years of collaboration with the company its growing family of global partners.

Canvas is an intuitive learning platform from Instructure which provides the opportunity for staff and students to shape a different learning experience, with diverse features and tools in a single online environment. It also integrates with some of our existing learning tools, including Turnitin, Talis, and Piazza. Coursebuilder pages can also be embedded into Canvas.

This website is designed for staff and includes the latest Canvas news and updates, avenues for Canvas help and support, information on tools integrated with Canvas and project information.
