The Future of America Is Texas

And Texas Is Using Canvas to Shape the Future of Education

Canvas is proud to work with K–12 institutions, colleges, and universities across the Lone Star State to prepare students for their chosen career paths. We understand the Education Services Centers’ (ESC) mission to streamline the technology that supports Texas learning initiatives. Our goal is to provide Canvas affordably to Texas schools statewide and help strengthen the future of student-centered learning in Texas.

So: Is Canvas easy to use? It’s easier’n all get out. (Are we saying that right?)

what fellow texans are saying about canvas

Teachers in the Allen Independent School District say Canvas has helped them become more organized, more creative, and better able to provide student- centered learning.
