Canvas is UBC’s primary learning platform for delivering online course content. In Canvas, you can share materials (text or multimedia), enable student collaboration and discussion, manage assignments and quizzes, and assign grades. Canvas can also be used with many other UBC learning technologies.
Kaltura is a media platform for instructors and students to create, store and share multimedia content directly in Canvas, without using your course disk space limits.
Zoom is a video/audio web-conferencing and collaboration tool that lets you meet with others in real time.
