Learning platforms

At Umeå university we currently use Canvas, Cambro and Moodle as our learning platforms. In 2022 all courses will be in Canvas. Read more about the learning platforms and course administration on this page.

On the different learning platforms there are course sites that can be used to, for example, give information about the course, give instructions, create assignments and forums for communication between the students and the teacher during the course. Contact your institution if you are not sure about which learning platform you should use.

As an employee you can login to the learning platforms with your Umu-id.

Canvas

Canvas is the new learning platform at Umeå university. Starting in 2022 all courses will be in Canvas. There are many tools for teaching and learning in a course site in Canvas. As a teacher you build the course, structure the material, build the content, create assignments and other things that the students need to go through within the course.
