CSUN Canvas is a collaborative LMS (learning management system) by California State University, Northridge. It represents a modern LMS in all its features and functionality, thus allowing teachers to personalize enrollments, administer questions and quizzes, assign grades, share documents, and communicate with students to know about their personalized features. 

After you get admitted into the university as a bonafide student, CSUN Canvas is your go-to place for all your requirements and queries. As a student, you get full access to the materials provided by your tutor. Besides, you can do many more things, such as check your schedule and grades and set your preferences for receiving notifications right on your mobiles. 

Canvas CSUN comes with multiple grading tools such as audio/video feedback, rubrics, and a dedicated grading app. Moreover, Canvas CSUN comes with many external tools, such as Respondus and Turnitin, which the faculty can use in their respective courses. Other external apps are also present, which let the faculty embed YouTube videos, Khan Academy, Educreation, Wikipedia, etc. 

Moreover, one can access CSUN Canvas on almost all browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, etc. However, keep in mind not to use the lite version of the browser. The lite version significantly reduces the output, leading to a poor and unsatisfactory user experience.
