Canvas Learning Management System (LMS)
A learning management system (LMS) is a software application or Web-based technology used to plan, implement, and assess a specific learning process. Typically, a learning management system provides an instructor with a way to create and deliver content, monitor student participation, ans assess student performance. A learning management system can also provide students with the ability to use interactive features such as threaded discussions, video conferencing, and discussion forums.
The learning management system MHHS has decided to use is called Canvas. Canvas is an open-source learning management system that's revolutionizing the way we educate students. This open modern learning management system will be used to host content, textbooks, primary source documents, videos, quizzes, tests, and information that will help student keep track of their work and assignments, and help parents keep track of what's going on academically with their students.
