Canvas LMS is the new, open-source learning management system that’s revolutionizing the way we educate. Easy to learn, easy to use.

Bitnami Virtual Machines contain a minimal Linux operating system with Canvas LMS installed and configured. This enables you to run the application without actually installing it on your computer. It's completely isolated from other software installed on your machine and makes an ideal sandbox for your project.

Using the Bitnami Virtual Machine image requires hypervisor software such as VMware Player or VirtualBox. Both of these hypervisors are available free of charge. After installing your preferred hypervisor, download and extract the Bitnami Virtual Machine by following the instructions in our getting started guide for VMware or VirtualBox.

  1. Bitnami Canvas LMS 3

    Butnami Canvas is good but load file fail

    by Mike Lin on

    Canvas LMS is good and intuitive manipulate the class but it seems the integration of Redis is not packaged rightfully. It's not running at beginning over Ubuntu 14.04.3. Giving 3 starts is because the upload content can not be retrieve properly (e.g picture won't show up). it becomes the given package can barely useful. Hope that can be fixed. However, Canvas itself looks easy to get start with LMS.
