Spelman has adopted Canvas as its Learning Management System (LMS) and is branded as Spel.eLearn. An LMS is a password-protected application that allows instructors to post course materials online and is accessible to students 24/7. As an all-in-one learning platform, Canvas provides a flexible toolset to support both blended learning and 100% online courses.
