Faculty members use Canvas as a learning management system (LMS) to deliver online courses at Messiah College. Courses and coursework can be delivered asynchronously (on your own schedule) and/or synchronously (live). The course's learning management system provides learning spaces for each course that allows faculty and students to collaborate asynchronously through forums, blogs, email, and wiki tools. It also provides the ability for faculty and students to communicate synchronously through a chat tool, real-time audio, video, shared whiteboard and desktop sharing.
