Teaching on a Learning Management System (LMS) has its advantages, the first of which is the benefit of a centralized (and self-contained) platform for communicating with students.
An LMS, like Canvas, is organized with various pages and folders dedicated for uploading/ downloading syllabus, modules, assignments, quizzes, etc. It also has a built in system for designing rubrics and evaluating and recording students’ grades.
Through the discussion page, asynchronous instruction in an LMS may be enhanced by student and teacher interaction in Chat or in Discussion forum. An LMS, thus serves not only as a classroom management device but a learning and teaching platform.
