Canvas is VinUniversity’s learning management system.
Instructors can use this platform to create, share and distribute course materials, assignments, communications, and other aspects of teaching for their courses.
Students who have successfully registered for a VinUni course are automatically enrolled in that course on Canvas.
Students can easily access course materials, start or participate in discussions, submit assignments, communicate with their fellow students and instructors, and participate in other course activities on their computers or on their mobile devices using the Canvas app.
Canvas users must, in good faith, comply with copyright laws when posting materials on Canvas. If you have questions about the use of any material for your Canvas course, please contact the VinUni VINO Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
