Google Classroom and Canvas LMS

Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) is a Web-based software application that is used by teachers to plan, implement, and assess a specific learning process. Typically, a learning management system provides an instructor with a way to create and deliver content, monitor student participation, and assess student performance. A learning management system may also provide students with the ability to use interactive features such as threaded discussions, video conferencing, and discussion forums. Learning management systems range from systems for managing training and educational records to software for distributing online or blended/hybrid courses over the Internet with features for online collaboration.  LMSs also act to augment rather than replace the lessons the teacher is giving in a brick and mortar environment.

Google Classroom – Google Classroom was released in the Fall of 2014, to enhance the workflow of teachers using Google Apps for Education in the Classroom. It is a blended learning platform for schools that aim to simplify creating, distributing and grading assignments created (using GAFE) in a paperless way.

GAFE - Google Apps for Education (GAFE) is a core suite of productivity applications that Google offers to schools and educational institutions for FREE. These communication and collaboration apps include Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs and Sites, and a GAFE account unlocks access to dozens of other collaborative tools supported by Google. All of these applications exists completely online (or in the cloud), meaning that all creations can be accessed from any device with an Internet connection.
