What is a Learning Management System
A learning management system (LMS) is a software application designed to create, distribute and manage the delivery of educational content. As an LMS, Canvas will serve as a multifunctional and comprehensive solution to connect PGCPS digital resources in a single location. It will be where teachers can post content, facilitate discussions and administer formative assessments, while students will be able to see their assignments, due dates and class materials in one place. It can also be a space where students may extend their learning outside of the normal classroom and school day.
