Our System

Canvas Catalog allows the public to use Canvas to take non-credit courses and the system can:

There are many benefits to creating non-credit online courses including:

  • Many grants require "broader impacts"
  • More people can learn about your work/research
  • The general populace can benefit from your expertise
  • Can be used to strengthen promotion and tenure packets
  • Can generate funds
