Canvas Instructor Guide

Canvas, by Instructure, is UNM’s new Learning Management System starting Summer 2022. It will replace UNM Learn. We have gathered some resources below for students to get familiar with Canvas. If you ever have a question, please feel free to reach out to UNM Canvas Support 

Please read:
  • Some third-party tools that may be mentioned in the vendor’s documentation, such as Microsoft Office 365 and Google Drive, are not integrated with our instance of Canvas. 
  • Some things mentioned may not be the same as our instance. Some of our settings are configured to pull data from the Banner/LoboWeb Student Information System or to align with UNM business processes and student privacy concerns.
