Canvas is the learning platform at Umeå university.

Canvas opened for all users during spring 2020 and the plan is that all courses will be transferred to Canvas during 2021. In 2022 all courses will use Canvas as the learning platform.

Digital guides and manuals can be found in Canvas when you log in with your Umu-id.

If you need help and support in Canvas you can always contact the IT-support through ITS Servicedesk.

Download the Canvas Student app

With the app you get updates about the course directly to your phone. You can get notifications when your teacher submits feedback on an assignment and send messages to others in the course. Download the app from App Store or Google.

The app has certain limitations in calendar management, uploading files to quizzes as well as answering quizzes. These features work best through web browsers.

Cambro and Moodle closing

Starting December 16 2022 you can no longer log in to Cambro or Moodle. This means that if you have material that you would like to download from Cambro or Moodle you should do it as soon as possible. If you have unfinished courses or think that you still have make-up assignments in Cambro or Moodle you must contact the department about how to complete the course or assignment.
