About Canvas at MIT

What is Canvas?

Canvas is an easy-to-use Learning Management System (LMS) that brings instructors, students, and course content together in one place: online course sites.

It’s cloud-based so you can access all of your courses in real-time from anywhere on any device.

How do I login?

  • MIT Students, Faculty and Staff - use MIT Kerberos
  • Sloan Alumni - use Infinite Connection beginning on July 1, of your graduation year
  • Dual Roles – What if I’m an alum and an active faculty, staff or student?
    • If you are a matriculating student or active faculty or staff, then please use your MIT Kerberos credentials by selecting MIT Student, Faculty, and Staff from the Canvas login choices
  • All other users (e.g. Guests) - contact your TA or Instructor for sponsorship
