Welcome to the Lurleen B. Wallace Community College Canvas Information page. LBWCC migrated to a new learning management system Spring 2013 called Canvas. The Canvas LMS uses all web based content. LBWCC made this change believing that Canvas would be more user friendly and the updated features would be more beneficial for faculty and students.
This page will guide you through all of the necessary information needed before beginning any distance education course.
