What is Canvas?

To support your learning, the WEA uses Canvas, a website that:

  • gives information and support for your course,
  • has your course materials,
  • is where you submit your work.

Canvas helps you to learn via your mobile, tablet or computer. Canvas contains discussion areas, quizzes and more. Canvas is also tailored to your accessibility level.

In-venue courses and online courses both use Canvas. You will receive a link to sign up to Canvas when you book.
