Collaborative Environments for Teaching and Learning

Supporting, enriching, and inspiring the teaching, learning, and collaborative communities at Fort Lewis College

When such a huge—and growing—part of teaching and learning happens digitally, our aim is to help faculty explore the ever-changing nature of teaching with technology. We are proud to offer a wide range of platforms, including Canvas, Office 365, and Blogs at FLC.


CanvasCanvas makes it easy for instructors to post course materials online, facilitate class communication and teamwork, collect student work, gauge student progress, manage a gradebook, and extend learning beyond the classroom.
