Reporting and Analytics 

University of the Pacific Canvas, the campuswide learning management system (LMS), is a linchpin of educational technology at University of the Pacific. Instructors use it to organize and present class materials, assign and view homework, assess submissions, provide grades, and communicate with their students. Students use it to manage their course requirements, find course materials, submit homework, assess their course progress, and communicate with instructors and classmates about course assignments and requirements. The system is flexible. Faculty can use it to supplement in-person lectures, or to manage blended/hybrid or fully online courses. Like many modern services, it is hosted in the cloud, and works comfortably on mobile devices.  
University of the Pacific Canvas integrates with campus systems. Its log-in process recognizes (“authenticates”) faculty, students and staff by using information from University of the Pacific campus computing accounts, and the service imports official course and enrollment information from the campus Student Information System. Users may be assigned varying levels of permission based on their roles within each course site, such as Teacher, TA, and Student. Some users can receive administrative sub-account access so they can manage and support course sites within a department. University of the Pacific Canvas can also integrate with third-party apps.


Built-in tools include:

  • Gradebook
  • Assignment submission
  • Discussion Forums
  • Quizzes
  • Modules
  • Communication tools
  • Chat room
  • Syllabus
