CarmenCanvas is Ohio State's online course management system, used by instructors, staff, and TAs to create and share materials. It's named for the song Carmen, Ohio -- Ohio State's alma mater.
While Carmen is the overall system, the learning management system at the core is called Canvas. Users can download mobile apps to access Canvas functionality. Functionality that is customized for Ohio State is often delivered via the Carmen landing page.
