Canvas is UBC's new online learning platform.  Our new user-friendly platform includes features such as quizzes, chat, and a mobile app for instructors and students.  Numerous external tools, such as iClicker, ComPAIR, and Piazza, can also be used with Canvas.

Connect was decommissioned on August 31, 2018, and is no longer available for teaching courses.  If you're an instructor and have yet to start using Canvas, please contact your faculty's Instructional Support Unit (UBC Vancouver) or the Centre for Teaching and Learning (UBC Okanagan) for assistance.
