Learning platform

At Umeå university we currently use Canvas as a learning platform. Read more about the learning platform on this page.

As an employee you can login to Canvas with your Umu-id.

On a course site in Canvas there are many tools for you to build the course, structure the material, build the content, create assignments and other things that the students need to go through within the course.



Guides in Canvas

I Canvas you can find guides and material for how to create and work with your courses. There is an FAQ for your specific questions and an online course (in Swedish) to get started with Canvas.
