My Tulane/Canvas

MyTulane or, Canvas, is Tulane’s university learning management system (LMS) and the online center of your academic work. Canvas easily connects instructors and students and is used to manage active enrollments and assignment submissions, monitor grades, share course documents, and contain course and institutional syllabus information.

Why should I use Canvas?

Canvas is widely used across the university for both academic and organizational purposes. To maintain a consistent experience for students, we recommend that all faculty use Canvas for:

  • Canvas Gradebook (Grades)
  • Post a syllabus
  • Inbox/Conversations

Most departments at Tulane require faculty to maintain a Canvas site for each course section. We recommend each course site includes a course home page, current grades, the course syllabus, and instructor contact information.
