The Canvas learning platform at the Department of Psychology

During 2019-2020, Lund University will start using the Canvas learning platform. Canvas is a modern and user-friendly platform that gives students, doctoral students, teaching staff and administrators the opportunity to build an attractive and accessible digital learning environment at Lund University. Canvas is used today by more than 3,000 universities and institutions around the world. At the Department of Psychology, Canvas will replace Luvit.

During the autumn, a number of courses at the department have started using Canvas, and by spring most others. In the autumn of 2020, the last courses will be transferred to Canvas. After that, Luvit will be no longer used.

Canvas Online Education

In Canvas you can record your lectures and reach out to the students, which is relevant when the classroom teaching is canceled due to the corona virus.

Once you have completed the course you will be able to build up an educational structure within Canvas. At the start of the semester, the students have access to the course material in Canvas.
